Edinburgh Fujitsu workers to strike again in jobs and pension disputes

By Émer O’Toole

Edinburgh and UK workers at IT giant Fujitsu are to strike at sites across the UK in their long running conflict over jobs and pension cuts.

Members of Unite will walk out for 24 hours on Wednesday this week and April 24 and for 48 hours on April 20.

The action will involve workers at Edinburgh, Basingstoke, Belfast, Birmingham, Bracknell, Crewe, London, Manchester, Stevenage, Wakefield and Warrington.

Unite national officer Ian Tonks said: “The previous four days of strike action generated strong support from workers determined to stand up for their jobs and livelihoods.

“The way Fujitsu is treating its workforce and keeping them in the dark over its plans for the future is beyond contempt.

“This is a workforce that has worked hard to make Fujitsu in the UK highly profitable, yet their reward is job cuts and pension reductions, while the company frustrates Unite’s attempts to minimise compulsory redundancies.”
