Defend Alan Jenney

The campaign to stop Fujitsu bypassing its own procedures and singling out UNITE Crewe rep Alan Jenney for “redundancy” continues. Thanks to everyone who has already returned the petition or sent messages of protest. For more details see online. Please return any remaining signatures before the end of this week.
On 10th May UNITE members in Crewe decided unanimously to make preparations for an industrial action ballot over the case. Alan’s “90-days” expires before the end of June, and the company has still failed to take the simple steps necessary to resolve the situation.
A further members’ meeting has now decided to ask UNITE to start the process to ballot members in Crewe for industrial action, to ensure that the result is available before Alan’s ballot.
Please do as much as you can to support the campaign, so that it can be brought to a successful conclusion without the need for members to go on strike.
If the issue is unresolved and the vote is to strike, action could take place on 30th June to coincide with many of our customers going on strike in defence of public services. After all, if it wasn’t for the government cuts, Fujitsu wouldn’t be under such pressure to worsen our pay and conditions, and perhaps wouldn’t be so aggressive in its dealings with union reps. Making these links should help members build support to ensure Alan keeps his job and we protect the union organisation that protects us.

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.
