Update to employees on 2012 pay review
UNITE has submitted its pay claim for employees in the Manchester bargaining unit, which you can read online here.
Fujitsu and UNITE have agreed the following timetable for negotiations this year to ensure that pay reviews can be implemented for 1st August 2012:

Stage 1:

  • Negotiations: Tuesday 29th and Wednesday 30th May
  • Company offer to UNITE by: Wednesday 30th May
  • UNITE membersí meeting and response to offer: Thursday 31st May
Stage 2 (if required)

  • Negotiations: Wednesday 6th and Friday 8th June
  • Company offer to UNITE by: Friday 15th June
  • UNITE membersí meeting and response to offer: Friday 22nd June
Stage 3 (if required):

  • Negotiations: Monday 2nd and Tuesday 3rd July
  • Company offer to UNITE by: Friday 6th July
  • UNITE membersí meeting and response to offer Friday 13th July

All appraisals for employees in the Manchester bargaining unit should have been completed and PACs uploaded by the end of April, to feed in to the pay review process.  However, it currently appears that the PACs for a majority of you have not been uploaded.  We urge all managers to complete this process as quickly as possible, and all employees to check that their appraisal is complete on the online system and speak to their manager if it is not.
UNITE has used early responses to their survey to help determine their claim, but would still welcome further responses from employees as the information will be useful during negotiations.  The survey will be closed in two daysí time.
