Greater Manchester IT Branch Meetings

As usual, the UNITE Greater Manchester IT Branch has agreed to buy a batch of UNITE diaries for members who want one. As well as being a handy diary, and helping raise the profile of your union, the diary contains useful information.
If you would like a 2012 UNITE diary, please let your reps know as soon as possible. If there is an unusually large number of requests, they may be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
The next meeting of the branch is:

5:30-7pm, Thursday 1st December at
Fujitsu, Central Park, Northampton Road, Manchester, M40 5BP.
Conference room 34GCR2.

There’s a map here.
All branch members are welcome to attend. This meeting will consider nominations for two new seats on the UNITE Executive Council.
Non-Fujitsu employees should report to the reception at MAN34 (the middle building), from where you can be escorted on site.

Industrial action is currently suspended but the fight continues.
