Fujitsu has terminated its UK works council and announced 1800 UK job cuts, the first of which is due on Monday 20 March.

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.
