Protecting jobs at Fujitsu - NHS fallout

Following the decision of Fujitsu to pull out of contract negotiations with the NHS and the subsequent termination of the contract, it's far from clear what this will mean for Fujitsu staff. We had nearly 1000 working on the contract, mainly in the Thames Valley, London and the south.

While UNITE is talking to Fujitsu about the future, the union is also urging the government to decide what it's going to do. Until the government decides what contracts there will be in future and who will get them, there's no possibility of preserving the jobs whether by keeping them in Fujitsu or TUPE transferring people to other suppliers.
