TUPE Transfer (Tesco contract)

UNITE is aware that 79 employees that work on the Tesco contract are in-scope for TUPE transfer out of Fujitsu: 63 from Engineering Services, 6 from Implementation & Test Services, and 10 from RTM&S BU.
As part of the consultation process the Company has asked for 4 employee representatives, 2 from Engineering Services, 1 from the Development team and 1 from the Account team in the Business Unit.
At the moment only two people have put their names forward for this, one UNITE member (Greg Mathews from Engineering Services) and one other, so more nominations are needed.
UNITE members who are elected as employee reps will have access to advice and support from the union. Unless you’re in the Manchester Bargaining Unit, please consider standing as an employee rep for the Consultation Group – the deadline for nominations is Wednesday 7th March at 12 noon so if you are willing to stand, apply soon (to HR).
If you are in scope for this transfer please get in touch.
If you know of non-members in scope for this transfer please do encourage them to join UNITE.

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.
