Regrading Success

Most UNITE members are aware of UNITE’s bargaining unit in Manchester, but less aware of the growing number of bargaining units elsewhere in the country.
In April 2011 members of the Distributed Support team at RBS transferred under TUPE to Fujitsu’s EUS.  Months later, Fujitsu proposed to “map” them onto Fujitsu’s Professional Community role codes, leading more of the ex-RBS staff to join UNITE and a number to raise issues about the proposed mapping.
One of the members writes:

“Several people within the DS team took Unite union’s advice (either from reps in RBS or Fujitsu) and with the help of this advice and representation in the initial meeting put together a strong case for a reconsideration of the proposed role mapping of TSS3 to a truer reflection of the roles and responsibilities resulting in the grade being revised to a TSS4.

“I would like to thank Fujitsu’s Unite reps for their help and representation throughout this period.”

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.
