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 across Fujitsu Services Limited in the UK have been taking industrial as part of their dispute over jobs, union recognition, pay and pensions. Action from 28 February has included 15 days of strikes and ongoing action short of strike.

INDUSTRIAL ACTION IS CURRENTLY SUSPENDED while members consider an offer from Fujitsu.

The national dispute follows the resolution of a local dispute in Manchester which included 12 strike days.

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