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

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.
