The Joint Working Group meets monthly to share information, discuss issues that affect employees in the north-west who are represented by UNITE, and to manage the engagement between UNITE and Fujitsu over the full range of issues.
The most recent meeting took place on 24th September, and the agenda included major items on redundancy and redeployment and pension auto-enrolment.
Minutes of the meeting will be published when agreed.  Previous minutes, including those from the meeting on 3rd September, can be found here on CafeVIK.
Our next meeting will be on Monday 29th October and the agenda includes a discussion on how to resolve issues promptly and without conflict, and forecast job and skills requirements (including new jobs and jobs at risk).
