United Kingdom - Members at Fujitsu vote in favour of conciliation proposals - February 27, 2010

Members of the Unite union working for IT services company Fujitsu have voted to accept proposals tabled by government conciliation service Acas aimed at resolving the dispute between Unite and the company over jobs, pay and pensions. The vote by a four to one majority in a 72% turnout means that the four month dispute, which involved 10 days of strike action, will end. In the course of the dispute the number of possible compulsory redundancies has been reduced from the initial 1,200 to less than 30 with an extension of employment until at least 26 March. In addition to an extension of the pension consultation period from October until at least 5 March 2010, a 5% increase in pay has been offered as compensation for the change to a defined contribution scheme (See also this Collective Bargaining Newsletter Year 3 January 2010).
