The Unite union has condemned Fujitsu's plans to cut 1,200 jobs in the UK.

The Unite union has condemned Fujitsu's plans to cut 1,200 jobs in the UK.

The union said the plans were "wholly unwarranted" given the company's recent profits and financial performance and said it would be doing everything possible to protect jobs.

Peter Skyte, Unite national officer for IT and communications, said, "These proposed redundancies amounting to 10% of its UK workforce are wholly unwarranted given that the company made £200m profit last year. It even paid two directors £1.59m in compensation for loss of office.

"Unite is pressing for detailed information about the reasons for this proposal and the areas affected. We will be doing everything possible to protect the jobs of the workforce."
