Fujitsu Voice

Elections are expected soon for the company’s new body for Informing and Consulting UK employees.
The “Strategic Development Committee Negotiating Group” has been busy negotiating the Charter for the new body, which will be called “Fujitsu Voice” and replace the company’s old UK Consultative Forum (UKCF). This process is expected to reach a conclusion in the near future, after which fresh elections will be held for employee representatives. The constituencies are currently expected to be:

Professional Community Constituency Example Roles No of representatives
Operations TSS, CSE, TSM, TST, OPS, SCO, CSS 10 + deputy
Customer Solution Architects CSA 2 + deputy
Software and Solution Development DEV, ADM, SDA, SDM 2 + deputy
Service Delivery Management and General Management MAN, GEN 2 + deputy
Project Management PJM, PGM, PCO, PJS 2 + deputy
Finance & Human Resources FM, SMA, HRSAD, HRGM, HRGAD 1 + deputy
Commercial, Legal, Procurement and Quality & Business Effectiveness COM, LEG, PUR, QBE 1 + deputy
Business Services BUS, BSM, SAS 1 + deputy
Business Consultancy BSC 1 + deputy
Sales, Account Management and Marketing SLP, BID, AMD, ABM, SMM, HOM 1 + deputy
TOTAL 23 + 10 deputies

You will see that the constituencies and seats have changed considerably from the current Negotiating Group. The most noticeable difference is that OPC should no longer be grossly under-represented.
UNITE is keen to ensure there are good candidates for every seat. If you might be interested in standing, please let your union know now, so that UNITE can assist you with your election address and ensure no seats are left vacant.
