Union Unite has ended industrial action against Fujitsu after workers agreed to an improved pay offer.

This ends months of disputes between Fujitsu and workers at sites in Crewe and Manchester. The union says the workers across the UK will now get better protection for there will be pay rises for most Manchester staff.

Kevin O’Gallagher, Unite national officer for IT and communications, said the agreement reflects a significant improvement in relations between Fujitsu and the union: “There is a renewed commitment to work together through our agreements which can help avoid conflict in future.”

“A significant number of new Unite representatives have recently been elected and the agreement should mean reps across the UK are, for the first time, allowed work time to deal with many issues affecting employees.
