Industrial Action SUSPENDED

Following talks yesterday Fujitsu has provided an offer (published by Unite on the Fujitsu intranet) this evening to resolve the dispute over jobs, union recognition, pay and pensions.

All industrial action is immediately suspending pending members’ voting on the offer. Amongst other things this means that you should complete timesheets normally from this week. Unite is not encouraging members to complete the backlog of timesheets unless the offer is accepted.

Unite will be organising meetings at Fujitsu sites around the UK to discuss the offer and next steps – watch this space.

If members support the approach set out in the offer, negotiations will take place while the action is suspended on an updated National Protocol Agreement to give more rights and facilities to members who don’t yet have union recognition and collective bargaining. Today’s offer and the new National Protocol would then be put to the vote together, in early July.

Alternatively, if members don’t support the approach set out in the offer, Unite could pull out of the discussions on an updated National Protocol and re-ballot members for further industrial action.

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.
