FJUK Pension Consultation group elections

One of the achievements of UNITE’s campaigning over the last couple of years was the creation of a new consultation group for the FJUK pension plan, which most employees are in.
In previous notices UNITE asked for volunteers who would be interested in taking part in the consultation body.
The company is expected to open nominations tomorrow (Tuesday 14th Feb) for the four directly elected seats. UNITE and PCS are asking everyone to support the following candidates in the election:

  1. Alasdair Lewis
  2. Chris Woolley
  3. Ed Wells

If you too are interested in joining the consultation group too, please get in touch as soon as possible. Female volunteers would be particularly welcome, as the candidates identified so far are all male. Because the elections are being conducted on a “First Past The Post” basis please DON’T nominate yourself without talking to UNITE first, as there is a risk that if members stand without coordinating through UNITE we could “split the vote” and end up with no members elected.
Alongside the four directly elected reps on the FJUK Pension Consultation Group there will also be two designated UNITE places on the consultation group, for which our Combine Committee has selected Christopher Jones and Robert (Wilf) Williams, and two representatives each from PCS and Fujitsu Voice.
