On Friday, 1st July, members who were balloted held a meeting at lunchtime to review the campaign so far and to hear about:

  • The limited progress in the ACAS talks in Manchester;
  • Alan’s individual consultation, redeployment opportunities being withdrawn or applications rejected;
  • All the support that has been shown and to look at the next steps in the dispute.

The following motion was passed unanimously.
“We note that the activities undertaken by members so far along with the strike action and picket have been effective at drawing attention to our campaign to protect union reps and organisation in Fujitsu, ‘Defend Alan Jenney’.

“We resolve that the campaign activities and industrial action short of strike should continue and that in the event of members in Manchester or elsewhere balloting for strike action on issues that include the dispute in Crewe, reps in Crewe should ask Unite to call further strike days and that these be coordinated with any action proposed elsewhere.”

Unite members working for Fujitsu Services Limited in the Manchester bargaining unit have taken 32 strike days over compulsory redundancies, victimisation of reps and breaches of agreements. This follows 27 previous days of strike action.

Industrial action is currently suspended but the fight continues.

Further information is available here including a downloadable appeal for support leaflet and how to donate to our strike fund.
