UNITE: Northern Ireland UNITE Meeting **TODAY** on National Industrial Action – “Enough is Enough”

It has become evident in recent weeks that Fujitsu’s aim of penalising employees “because our competitors are doing it” is not matched by reality as two of our main competitors (Steria and Cap Gemini) have negotiated pay rises, equitable pension schemes and even Christmas Bonuses.
Consequently after the overwhelming rejection of the insulting company ‘offer’ by Unite members and with no further moves forthcoming from Fujitsu management it seems that we will be forced into taking industrial action on Friday 18th December 2009.
In order to allow members to engage with their representatives and discuss the forthcoming plans for industrial action we have called a meeting for Thursday 17th December 2009.
Please encourage all members in the Northern Ireland region to attend, and interested non-members too.
We do hope that you will be able to attend and give your invaluable support to this campaign.

Date – Thursday 17th December 2009
Time – 12:30pm for 1 hour, prompt start

Unite members working for Fujitsu Services Limited in the Manchester bargaining unit have taken 32 strike days over compulsory redundancies, victimisation of reps and breaches of agreements. This follows 27 previous days of strike action.

Industrial action is currently suspended but the fight continues.

Further information is available here including a downloadable appeal for support leaflet and how to donate to our strike fund.
