Agreement on Pay Information

The law requires employers to disclose information to recognised unions to enable them to participate meaningfully in collective bargaining. Information obtained in this way has often benefited UNITE members throughout Fujitsu, not just in the areas with union recognition.
Earlier this year UNITE submitted a legal claim to the Central Arbitration Committee (CAC) complaining about Fujitsuís failure to disclose the necessary information in relation to the Manchester bargaining unit.
UNITE has now withdrawn the claim on the basis of another new agreement reached last week and submitted to the CAC. The union hopes that the agreement will facilitate a smoother bargaining process in future. If the company fails to adhere to it and UNITE has to submit a further claim to the CAC, the agreement is likely to significantly strengthen the unionís claim.
