Fujitsu strike is off

Concessions on pay and pensions end four month strike

Top three mobile application threats

Fujitsu and the Unite union have agreed terms to end the planned strike at the services giant.

Staff accepted proposals from arbitration organisation ACAS by a ratio of four to one.

Unite's national officer Peter Skyte said: “While the Acas brokered proposals do not fully satisfy our members’ aspirations, there have been significant changes in the company’s position on jobs, pay and pensions over the course of the dispute."

Fujitsu was originally seeking 1,200 redundancies. This has now sunk to less than 30.

The consultation over the closure of the final salary pension scheme has been extended until March and a five per cent pay increase to compensate for pension changes.

Fujitsu also made a commitment to discuss more open pay and benefit scales as part of "transparency talks". Unite's long term hope is for minimum earnings of £13,500.
