Agency Workers

UNITE previously circulated a report on the new rights for agency workers (e.g. Kelly’s) that are due to come into force tomorrow (1st October). Poor treatment for agency workers undermines terms and conditions for permanent staff. UNITE stands for “levelling up” standards.
There is now a TUC guide to the new regulations.

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.
