Crewe: Lunchtime Picket Practice on Thursday

We want to build the pressure on Fujitsu to resolve the dispute as soon as possible, ideally before any industrial action is required.
To show our seriousness and determination to strike if necessary, we will be holding a good-humoured “picket practice” protest outside CRE02 on Thursday.
This will also be an opportunity to get further media coverage for our campaign, increasing the pressure on Fujitsu, so it is important that we have the best turnout possible.

Come and join the gathering and flag-waving for half-an-hour – we might be a bit rusty doing picketing, so here’s a chance to get our message across to the company.
Further planning for this will take place in the members’ meeting on Tuesday.

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.
