Ericsson Managed Services (Recognised)
Prospect is the recognised trade union for members working in much of Ericsson's Managed Services organisation.
Our union recognition transferred over to Ericsson from BT/02 managers and for Vodafone engineers and team leaders along with TUPE.
In addition the union successfully campaigned for and gained trade union recognition on a voluntary basis for engineers working in the Field Services Organisation supporting MBNL in early 2010. This group worked on Three and T-Mobile contracts.
The managed services environment is one where changes are regular, meaning that our Prospect reps in Ericsson are always very busy working across the different contracts we have established a record of working for members on a range of collective issues.
These include negotiating the first consolidated pay increase for some years, bargaining to ensure that members receive a fair settlement and redeployment where Ericsson instigates offshoring activities, protecting existing benefits, negotiating over changes to shift patterns and establishing constructive consultation around reorganisations or relocations of work to safeguard members interests.
In addition, over several years we have established a good record of helping members sort out individual issues through our experienced and trained union representatives.
We are also helped by the high levels of membership that we have and professional and constructive way in which we go about our work.
