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.
