"The previous four days of strike action generated strong support from workers determined to stand up for their jobs and livelihoods.

"The way Fujitsu is treating its workforce and keeping them in the dark over its plans for the future is beyond contempt.

"This is a workforce that has worked hard to make Fujitsu in the UK highly profitable, yet their reward is job cuts and pension reductions, while the company frustrates Unite's attempts to minimise compulsory redundancies."
