Industrial action suspended

To: All Employees in the Manchester Bargaining Unit

Negotiations today have led to a company offer as a result of which the industrial action is suspended with immediate effect pending a members’ meeting to vote on the offer.

Please note you should NOT take the strike action scheduled for 20th January 2017 or further action short of strike. This means you should complete your timesheets and / or forecasting as normal until further notice. Only if the agreement is approved by members will Unite be encouraging you to fill in previous missing timesheets.

More information on the offer will be circulated soon.

Thank you again for the effort and support you have contributed which has brought us this far.


I am a Unite the Union workplace rep at Fujitsu Services and contribute to the Union's online presence. Outside work I have interests in various forms of technology, genealogy and as a card carrying CAMRA member I like the odd beer. My personal blog (which I will update regularly tomorrow) reflects those interests.

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.
