Since Unite announced strike action at Fujitsu Manchester from Thursday 22 to Wednesday 28 February, Fujitsu has announced an employee briefing with Duncan Tait (Fujitsu’s head of the Americas, Europe, Middle East, India and Africa) and Adrian Hart (Head of HR for Europe, Middle East, India and Africa) to take place this Friday (23 February).
Fujitsu may have chosen this date to dodge any challenge from strikers, but the strikers are keen to talk to them.
The industrial action scheduled for Friday 23rd February 2018 has been postponed to allow members to attend the briefing, so members should not take part in any action on that day.
The strikes on Thursday 22nd February, and Saturday 24th February to Wednesday 28 February 2018 are going ahead as planned.
On Thursday 22nd February there will be a meeting for all Unite members in the Fujitsu Manchester bargaining unit. This will take place after the pickets, from 11am in the “BMX Podium” room at the National Cycling Centre, Stuart Street, Manchester M11 4DQ. Map. Tea and coffee will be available on arrival. There is bike and car parking at the velodrome, which is also by the Velopark Metrolink station.
