Fujitsu staff aren’t just affected by government cuts because we, our families and communities rely on public services from the NHS, councils, education, pensions and benefits etc. We are also affected because:
- Fujitsu is a major supplier to government, and is passing on the cuts to us
- Austerity is making the recession longer and deeper
Following its 500,000 strong demonstration in London on 26th March, the TUC has called two important national demonstrations at the conferences of the governing parties:
- March at Lib Dem conference, Sunday 18th September. Assemble 11:00 Granville Street, Birmingham, B1 1JW. March to Lionel Street. More details.
- March at the Tory conference, Sunday 2nd October. Assemble 12:00 Liverpool Road, Manchester M3 4JR. More details.
Both marches also represent a great opportunity to get the message about our own disputes out to tens of thousands of trade unionists. Please let your reps know as soon as possible if you are available to attend either march, so that arrangements can be made.
