Unite the Resistance Public Meeting

Part of the strategy for bringing the dispute to a successful conclusion is to raise the profile of the campaign and build the support within the wider trade union movement.
On Thursday Alan Jenney, the Fujitsu Crewe rep unfairly dismissed as redundant, will be speaking at a public meeting in Manchester and we need a sizeable group of members there to distribute leaflets and build support for our campaign.

“Unite the Resistance” public meeting

7pm, Thursday 22nd September
Mechanics Institute, Princess Street, Manchester, M1 6DD (entrance on Major Street)

The public meeting will involve a wide range of trade unionists, as the main focus is the millions of members of UNITE and other unions who are preparing for industrial action over public sector cuts and pensions on 30th November, and getting organised for the TUC’s “March For The Alternative” at the Tory party conference in Manchester on 2nd October.

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.
