Tories and Fujitsu CEO spared embarrassing protest

Fujitsu's UK CEO was spared blushes yesterday as Fujitsu members of union Unite suspended a planned protest at the Tory party conference in Manchester, where he addressed a fringe meeting, and the small matter of a strike of Fujitsu workers in Manchester.

Unite members planned the strike and protest after Fujitsu allegedly breached agreements and victimised union representatives.

It seems Fujitsu agreed to come to the negotiating table in the eleventh hour and Fujitsu's UK CEO, Duncan Tait, was spared blushes. The same cannot be said for Theresa May, who had a catastrophic day.

Kevin O'Gallagher, Unite national officer, said: "Our members do not take strike action lightly. The agreement reached is good news for both our members and for Fujitsu. 

"Further talks are planned with the company. We hope this will produce an improved offer, which we will put to our members."
