PCS Members Voting on Offer

In the early stages of our campaign we were able to work jointly with the PCS union, which has members within certain specific areas of Fujitsu because of TUPE transfers from the civil service.
Fujitsu has consistently taken the “divide and conquer” approach, making different offers to the two unions. Nonetheless, both unions have made real progress as a result of the campaign. With PCS members being restricted to certain areas and less affected by some of the issues concerning UNITE members, it was easier for the company to make a credible offer to PCS, which PCS members are now voting on with a recommendation to accept.
The progress already made by both UNITE and PCS shows what campaigning can achieve. Making an acceptable offer on Jobs, Pay and Pensions for the whole company is bound to be harder for Fujitsu than doing a deal with PCS for some issues in specific areas. But if we stay determined and active we can secure an offer that is acceptable to UNITE members across the UK.

Sign the petition – defend the union

Unite members across Fujitsu Services Limited in the UK are fighting over job security, for union recognition, against victimisation of reps, and over pay and pensions. Members nationally took industrial from 28 February including 15 days of strikes and ongoing action short of strike, after 12 days of local strikes in Manchester.

INDUSTRIAL ACTION IS CURRENTLY SUSPENDED but members have voted by 92% to reject a company offer.

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