On Wednesday the 30th of November, many public sector union members will be taking strike action to defend pensions and opposing cuts in the public sector.
UNITE’s communication on the 21st of November highlighted the importance of showing support and solidarity to public sector struggle: we believe in an alternative to trimming public services, and together, private and public workers should voice this alternative.
We encourage all Fujitsu UNITE members to take part in the rally either by booking a ½ day or by taking long lunch break (bear in mind all such activity needs to be agreed in advance).
The meeting point in Belfast is at the Central Railway Station at 12. We will then walk toward the City Hall and join other protesters.
If you intend to join in, please notify your manager as soon as possible to arrange time off. You can also let your local reps (see below) know, as banners and placards will be organised.
Local UNITE reps and contacts are listed here: http://www.ourunion.org.uk/fujitsu/wheretogo.htm

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.
