Result of PCS Fujitsu ballot

PCS, our sister union in Fujitsu which organises in areas outsourced from the civil service, has been balloting the members in its bargaining unit which covers staff at several locations. The PCS dispute is about pay, but it is clear that Fujitsuís failure to honour previous agreements on pay has contributed to the strength of feeling.
The PCS ballot closed yesterday, with 65.6% voting for strike action and 85.3% voting for action short of strike on a 63.2% turnout.
The two unions are cooperating to maximise the pressure on Fujitsu to treat all its employees fairly. PCS have launched a petition supporting UNITE and PCS members campaigning for fair pay in Fujitsu.

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.
