Download an appeal for support leaflet and a collection sheet.

You can support members at Fujitsu:

All industrial action remains suspended until further notice. Amongst other things this means that you should complete timesheets normally. Unite is not encouraging members to complete the backlog of timesheets unless the offer is accepted.

A new national leaflet gives an update on the dispute, including new campaign goals.

Unite members across Fujitsu Services Limited in the UK took industrial action over jobs, union recognition, pay and pensions with ongoing action short of strike and strikes on 28 February; 17, 24, 27 March; 13, 20, 21, 24, 27, 28 April; 4, 5 , 8, 11, 12 May. This followed 12 days of strike action in Manchester.

Information from previous industrial action:

For Fujitsu staff there is a Q&A about the dispute, industrial action, picketing, dispute benefit etc.

Fujitsu has terminated its UK works council and announced 1800 UK job cuts, the first of which have already taken place.

Unite @ Fujitsu is campaigning:

  • To save jobs, avoid Compulsory Redundancies and improve redundancy pay
  • For all employees to have the right to union recognition, especially now our Voice has been removed
  • For compensation for employees whose pensions were retrospectively slashed; to tackle pay inequality; and for Fujitsu to become an accredited Living Wage employer

The national action follows the recent resolution of a local Manchester dispute which included twelve days of strike action.
