PCS strike threat wins increased pay for Fujitsu IT workers
A major pay deal which means an 11% increase for the lowest paid has been agreed for private sector IT staff on government contracts after the threat of strike action by the Public and Commercial Services union.
This rise is part of a deal agreed by the union after Fujitsu doubled the amount of money in the pot with an extra £500,000.
It will mean some workers who were paid just £13,500 two years ago will now not be paid less than £15,500, an increase of almost 15%.
