Birmingham Fujitsu workers strike against job transfer

Issue No. 2105

Around 140 workers at the Fujitsu electric components factory in Birmingham struck on Monday of this week in a fight against the transfer of jobs to the US.

The strikers, members of the CWU union, organised a lively 40-strong picket line that won solidarity from postal workers who refused to deliver mail to the company.

Lee Barron, the union’s Midlands regional secretary, told Socialist Worker that the dispute is a crucial part of defending manufacturing jobs and union organisation.
