Ballot update

If you have already posted off your ballot paper, please click here to tell your reps so they don’t nag you.

IMPORTANT: to be counted, your completed ballot paper must be returned to REACH Electoral Reform Services Limited, no later than NOON on TUESDAY 21 FEBRUARY 2017.

If you haven’t voted yet, please vote Yes+Yes and post off your vote as soon as possible. The ballot is for industrial action and the key issues in dispute are:

  • Jobs – saving them, avoiding compulsory redundancies
  • Union Recognition – all members should be able to opt-in to the bargaining unit, particularly in light of the company’s termination of Fujitsu Voice
  • Pay and Pensions – compensation for over-60s who have had their pensions retrospectively slashed, becoming an accredited Living Wage employer, and tackling Reward inequality

If you are a Unite member employed by Fujitsu Services Limited in the UK and have not received a voting paper by Wednesday 15th February you should contact IMMEDIATELY.

Lots of information is available on the Unite CafeVIK blog. This includes:

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.
