Stop victimisation at Fujitsu site

Issue No. 2245

The Unite union is campaigning to defend Phil Tepper, a rep at the Fujitsu IT company in Manchester. He faces a charge of gross misconduct.

This could result in instant dismissal at his hearing, set for Friday of this week.

The charge arises from his work as a safety rep, investigating complaints of work-related stress raised by members.

Join the Defend Phil Tepper rally, 8am, this Friday 1 April, outside the front of Central Park, Northampton Road, Manchester, M40 5BP. Sign a petition in his defence at
