Unite Fujitsu at Sunday’s Demo

Please join the UNITE delegation on the TUC “March for the Alternative” at the Tory conference in Manchester on Sunday:

Assemble 12 noon, Sunday 2nd October
Liverpool Road (off Deansgate), Manchester City Centre
March route map here

UNITE is providing transport from around the country to the march.
The plan is to march as a visible Fujitsu group and to distribute leaflets about our campaign to the demonstrators. Please let your reps know if you are able to take part in the demonstration, to make it easier to meet up. We will aim to meet before 12 noon near the junction of Liverpool Road and Duke Street (near The Ox pub and the Museum of Science and Industry, map). If you can’t find the group, you can call Ian Allinson, Lynne Hodge or Phil Tepper.
After the speeches finish at the TUC rally, the Right to Work campaign is holding a rally at which we will have a UNITE Fujitsu speaker and be able to distribute leaflets for our campaign:

Doors open 3.30pm
Mechanics Institute, 103 Princess St, Manchester M1 6DD (entrance on Major Street)
Other speakers include Mark Serwotka (PCS general secretary) and Tony Kearns (CWU senior deputy general secretary)

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.
