More strike days called

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

  • Two 24 hour stoppages commencing at 00:01 hours on Friday 24th March 2017 & Monday the 27th March 2017

This further action was agreed by the UNITE national combine committee following consultation and feedback with members across the country and is in addition to the strike called on Friday 17th March

Campaigning activities for these strike days will be discussed by the combine committee next week and reps would welcome your views on potential campaigning activities for these dates.

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.

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 next year) reflects those interests.

Sign the petition – defend the union

Unite members across Fujitsu Services Limited in the UK are fighting over job security, for union recognition, against victimisation of reps, and over pay and pensions. Members nationally took industrial from 28 February including 15 days of strikes and ongoing action short of strike, after 12 days of local strikes in Manchester.

INDUSTRIAL ACTION IS CURRENTLY SUSPENDED but members have voted by 92% to reject a company offer.

Further information is available here including a downloadable appeal for support leaflet and how to donate to our strike fund.
