Fujitsu strike is off

For now, while talks continue

High performance access to file storage

The Unite union has called off Friday's Fujitsu strike. The 24-hour walkout has been cancelled as a gesture of goodwill while talks continue.

The two sides are at ACAS to try and find agreement - next Monday's action is still due to go ahead. Over 450 staff are involved in the row over pay, pensions and redundancies.

Although the number of job cuts has been reduced by people taking voluntary payouts or being moved to other parts of the company, 42 people are still due to leave on Friday, Computerworld reports.

Apart from job cuts, the dispute is also related to the closure of the final salary pension scheme, which the union believes effectively cuts staff benefits by 20 per cent.

A spokesman for Fujitsu said it viewed the Acas talks as positive and thanks to redeployments it was now only planning 42 compulsory redundancies.

Workers took their complaints to Parliament last week. ®
