Manchester Fujitsu workers on strike

Workers at a Fujitsu site in Manchester were on strike Monday, and have a further two-day strike planned to begin on Wednesday.

Submitted by Mike Harman on November 25, 2006

The action, organised by the Amicus union, is in response to several grievances - including unpaid overtime, pay rise delays and erosion of redunancy rights. The Fujitsu site at Central Park provides call centre and IT services to the public sector, workers at another site at West Gorton also participated in the action. Workers have also begun action short of strike - including an overtime ban and general withdrawl of goodwill.
