Manchester TUPE Successes

Were delighted to report that all UNITE members originally in scope to TUPE transfer to Atos Origin with the Home Office Extend & Blend contract have secured outcomes they are happy with. As well as representing them in collective consultations, reps have been providing members with individual support and advice. With a member who secured an internal redeployment to move him out of scope (and away from a probable redundancy situation with his new employer), reps helped him to get his job offer letter altered to his satisfaction. He wrote Id like to thank you all for your help yesterday it just goes to show you what can be done when you are in the union. Enough said!
The two employees in the Manchester bargaining unit who were in scope to TUPE transfer out of Fujitsu as a result of the termination of the Thomson Reuters contract are both now out of scope too.

Industrial action is currently suspended but the fight continues.
