Fujitsu consultative ballot results

On Friday afternoon Unite opened an email consultative ballot over the following issues:

  • Stop the redundancies of the members fighting to stay
  • Stop victimising our reps

It was emphasised that members should vote exactly as they would vote in a statutory postal ballot, otherwise your reps cannot take into account members’ views when deciding on next steps.

Members were asked “Are you prepared to take part in industrial action consisting of a strike and action short of strike?”

The ballot closed at 2pm yesterday and the results were:

Turnout Yes No
Manchester 50.4% 64.2% 35.8%
UK including Manchester 37.9% 59.3% 40.7%

These results are a powerful message to Fujitsu – not only with a clear vote in favour of industrial action but a remarkably high turnout in just two working days.

Unite reps and officers are discussing next steps in light of members’ views.
