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.”

Unite members working for Fujitsu Services Limited in the Manchester bargaining unit have taken 32 strike days over compulsory redundancies, victimisation of reps and breaches of agreements. This follows 27 previous days of strike action.

Industrial action is currently suspended but the fight continues.

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