Talks to try to resolve the dispute are still ongoing. Unless they prove successful, the action planned for tomorrow (see below) will go ahead. If talks are successful, a further email will be issued and a notice posted on www.ourunion.org.uk/news.

.

This location for this protest has been agreed with the police and is just opposite where Duncan Tait (Fujitsu UK & Ireland’s Chief Executive Officer) is due to speak at a fringe meeting at the Tory conference at 12:30.
All members are urged to attend to ensure we send the strongest message possible that Fujitsu should resolve the dispute by honouring its agreements and stopping picking on reps.
Other campaigning activities are being planned for the afternoon.
Thanks to everyone who took part in the UNITE Fujitsu delegation at the demonstration yesterday, where members handed out thousands of leaflets about our campaign.

'Fujitsu Whistleblower' hotline. Concerned about unethical or illegal practices? Contact the hotline on 0800 852 7479 or fujitsu.whistleblowers@unitetheunion.org. It is run by Unite the Union and your identity will be kept strictly confidential. Don't let Fujitsu silence whistleblowers.

Unite members working for Fujitsu Services Limited in the Manchester bargaining unit have taken 32 strike days over compulsory redundancies, victimisation of reps and breaches of agreements. This follows 27 previous days of strike action.

Industrial action is currently suspended but the fight continues.

Further information is available here including a downloadable appeal for support leaflet and how to donate to our strike fund.
