Plans for Monday’s Fujitsu Manchester strike

Fujitsu Manchester staff are due to take their sixth strike day on Monday (5th December) as part of their dispute over pay, pensions and job security. The action is particularly important to keep pressure on Fujitsu before long-awaited talks with the company and ACAS which are scheduled for Friday 9th December.

The activities planned for Monday’s strike are:

Fujitsu staff provide vital services to the public and private sector alike. Services to some customers have already been directly affected by the industrial action. Unite is calling on Fujitsu to resolve the dispute rather than further jeopardise their customers. This is a particularly important time of year for Fujitsu’s retail customers, who include Argos, Boots, Costa Coffee, H&M, HSBC, KFC, McDonalds, Marks & Spencer, Santander, Specsavers and Tesco. Strikers plan to leaflet some of their stores to encourage Fujitsu’s customers to ask the company to protect their service by settling the dispute.
