Elections

Nominations for UNITE reps in the South-East, South-West and Wales region closed yesterday, with no members opposing the three candidates who had come forward, so they are elected unopposed:

  • Joe Harrison, BRA01
  • Brian Reeves, BRA01 (as a Health & Safety rep)
  • Jason Hudson, REA24

Joe, Brian and Jason join Chris Forrest and Jim Anderson in Basingstoke as the team for the region.
Combine Committee Elections

Our “Combine Committee” coordinates UNITE’s work in Fujitsu at both regional and UK level.  Members on the Combine Committee are expected to:

  • Encourage members in their constituency to hold meetings, elect reps and get involved at a local level
  • Seek views from members, reps and contacts in their constituency
  • Work together as a team
  • Maximise members’ involvement in decision making
  • Take part in combine committee discussions and decision-making
  • Report back to members, reps and contacts in their constituency
  • Coordinate with reps and contacts in their constituency, including encouraging them to undertake training and gain accreditation
  • Liaise with the union full-time officers covering Fujitsu in their constituency

If you are willing to stand for election to the Combine Committee, please email by Tuesday 28th August including:

  • Your name
  • Your Fujitsu email address (and a private email address if you have one)
  • Your work phone number (and a mobile number if you have one)
  • Which constituency you are standing for (see below)
  • An election statement of up to 100 words (examples are available on request)

Existing members of the Combine Committee DO need to stand if they wish to be re-elected.

Unite members across Fujitsu Services Limited in the UK have been taking industrial as part of their dispute over jobs, union recognition, pay and pensions. Action from 28 February has included 15 days of strikes and ongoing action short of strike.

INDUSTRIAL ACTION IS CURRENTLY SUSPENDED but members have voted by 92% to reject a company offer and renewed campaign plans are being made.

The national dispute follows the resolution of a local dispute in Manchester which included 12 strike days.

Further information is available here including events, pickets, a downloadable appeal for support leaflet and how to donate to our strike fund.
