Pensions progress

One of the issues which led to the industrial action in Manchester was the company’s failure to implement its commitment in the national ACAS agreement of February 2010 to set up a body to consult members of the FJUK Defined Contribution pension scheme. This was also one of the issues addressed by the joint UNITE-PCS pensions petition.
UNITE can now report that Fujitsu has agreed Terms of Reference for a new “FJUK Plan Consultation Group”. This is a very important step forward – well done to everyone who supported the campaign.
The first meeting of the new body will be held by the end of March 2012. Employee representation will comprise:

  • Two chosen by and from the elected representatives of Fujitsu Voice
  • Two representatives from PCS
  • Two representatives from Unite
  • Four employees directly elected for the purpose by and from the active members of the FJUK Plan

Please get in touch as soon as possible if you might be interested in taking part in the new body, so that UNITE can assist with training or the election process. Having won this new consultation body, it is important we make it work as well as possible.
UNITE has published a full copy of the Terms of Reference for the group here

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.
