Workers at Japanese electronics firm Fujitsu in the UK have voted to go on strike in a dispute over pay, job losses and pension cuts.

"Our members are saying enough is enough," said Unite national officer Peter Skyte.

The company employs a total of 12,500 people in the UK.

Unite first warned of strike action in August.

The company has 26 information technology services offices in England, Wales and Scotland.

Those in England are in Basingstoke, Birmingham, Blackpool, Bolton, Bracknell, Bristol, Crewe, Exeter, London, Lytham St Annes, Manchester, Newcastle upon Tyne, Slough, Solihull, Staines, Stevenage, Wakefield, Warrington, Warwick and Winnersh.

In Wales there are offices in Cardiff and Swansea and in Scotland in Dundee, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Inverness.
