Hundreds of Fujitsu staff members of the union Unite are to stage a demonstration at the Tory party conference...

in Manchester as part of a one-day strike.

Unite members are taking industrial action after claiming Fujitsu breached agreements and victimised union representatives.

The protesters will demonstrate as Fujitsu's UK CEO, Duncan Tait, speaks at a Tory party conference fringe meeting. There will also be picket lines at sites in Manchester and Salford.

Kevin O'Gallagher, Unite national officer, said members are resolute and will continue with industrial action until the Fujitsu negotiates.

"They've fought long and hard, over many years, to get agreements and will not stand by and let the company just arbitrarily break them. This company has shamefully failed to honour the agreements made with the union and our members feel they have no option but to take industrial action. Unite members working at Fujitsu are proud of the work they do and the services they deliver. But they are frustrated that some of those at the top are undermining their efforts."
