Fujitsu members vote for strike action over pay

PCS members in Fujitsu have voted strongly in favour of industrial action.

PCS members who work for Fujitsu Services have voted by 77.1% to take strike action and by 90.7% to take action short of a strike on a turnout of 80.4%.

Members are furious at being offered 1.5% after a pay freeze last year and due to the current cost of living crisis spiralling out of control.

This is in effect a 0.75% pay offer per year and goes no way near to meeting our very reasonable and justified pay claim of a consolidated 4% increase or a £1500 underpin whichever is greater.

PCS has written to Fujitsu to inform them of the result and ask them if they want to reopen the pay negotiations. We have made it clear that only a significantly increased offer will prevent the union moving to industrial action.
