Unite appeals for solidarity with Fujitsu UK workers

20.04.2017

IndustriALL Global Union affiliate, Unite, is appealing for solidarity action in support of Fujitsu workers in the UK, as the company plans to axe 1,800 jobs.

Fujitsu workers in the UK will take further strike action over the company's plans to make cuts on jobs and pensions. 

At IndustriALL's World Conference for White-collar workers, participants expressed their support with Fujitsu workers in the UK. The conference called on unions to:

  • Write to Fujitsu management in their home countries requesting they settle the dispute at Fujitsu UK.
  • Send messages of solidarity and support to UNITE Fujitsu members.

IndustriALL's UK affiliate, Unite the union, will deliver a letter to the Japanese ambassador Mr Koji Tsuruoka tomorrow (Friday 21 April) at the London embassy. The union has strongly criticized the way the UK management at Fujitsu has behaved over the proposed job losses.
