Leafleting at BITC Summit: it’s time Fujitsu became a Responsible Business

Leafleters with flags outside BITC summit

This morning Unite was out leafleting in London again, this time at the AGM and leadership summit of Business In The Community (BITC), which last year named Fujitsu as “Responsible Business of the Year”. Around 350 people went into the conference, which was addressed by Prince Charles, and most took leaflets and were interested in the issues raised.

It’s time Fujitsu became a responsible business. It could start by settling the dispute in Manchester, tackling its 16% gender pay gap, becoming an accredited Living Wage employer and stopping its attempt to rush through 1800 UK job cuts while UK staff are without a works council.

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.
