Next strike day. Ongoing industrial action. NHS demo tomorrow.

Unite has given the company official notification of the next UK-wide Fujitsu Services Limited strike day in our campaign over jobs, union recognition, pay and pensions:

  • 24 hour stoppage commencing at 00:01 hours on Friday 17th March 2017

This is the last normal working day in GB before the company proposes to make the first redundancy dismissals on Monday 20th March. In Northern Ireland it is the St Patrick’s Day bank holiday, when most people will not be scheduled to work. This will increase the impact of the strike action across the UK, as fewer people will be working anyway.

The ongoing action previously called continues until further notice:

  • Refusal to cooperate with or participate in projects to move work offshore, including knowledge transfer
  • Refusal to undertake time recording (e.g. SST) or forecasting (e.g. MyTime)
  • Work to rule and withdrawal of goodwill
  • Ban on overtime

Further details will be announced about arrangements for the strike day and other campaigning activities.

Unite will continue pressing Fujitsu to lift the threat of impending compulsory redundancies and negotiate a settlement.

If you are attending the #ourNHS demonstration in London tomorrow, please take along some copies of our Appeal for Support leaflet to give out – the more campaigning we do when we’re not striking, the less strike action will be needed to bring the dispute to a successful conclusion.
