Fight for union recognition at Fujitsu Services

Issue No. 1993

IT services company Fujitsu Services (formerly ICL) is facing a strike ballot over attempts to derecognise the Amicus union at its Manchester offices, which employ about 800 people.

The company doesn’t recognise unions in most of its British operations and Manchester has been central to extending union organisation nationally.

The company previously tried to attack the union in 2003, but strikes were successful in both fending off the attack.

A large members’ meeting last week voted unanimously to ballot for strike action. The meeting also voted to reject the company’s pay offer.
