Further strike negotiations to be needed at Fujitsu?
65 more employees of Fujitsu are set to go on strike next Monday (September 19th).
Further strike negotiations are set to be required between senior officials and workers at a computer manufacturing company, it has emerged today (September 12th).
According to the Staffordshire Sentinel, employees at a factory managed by Fujitsu in Crewe will take industrial action by deserting their duties next Monday (September 19th) to show their support to their Unite representative Alan Jenney.
Around 1,000 members of staff at Fujitsu across the country are set to strike on the same day for a variety of causes, including the victimisation of union officials and the fact they have been offered apparently insufficient pay increases.
Now, 65 workers at the organisation's Crewe depot will take to the picket line in protest over Mr Jenney's dismissal from his role, as they believe he has been made redundant by bosses due solely to his trade union activities.
"I'm very pleased that my colleagues are continuing to support me even though I have been dismissed - hopefully it will go some way to protect the reps still there," the 40-year-old told the news source.
