IT workers balloted over pension

Fujitsu

Workers at Fujitsu are to vote on industrial action over pay and pensions.

The IT company employs 160 people at offices at Timber quay in Londonderry and around 14,500 UK-wide.

The union Unite said that proposed changes to the pension scheme would reduce worker's take home pay by at least 15%.

In May, the company announced that it would be closing its final salary pension scheme.

The move would effect 4,000 of the current workforce who are members of the scheme.
