systemd and fsck at boot

Debian 8 (just released) has systemd rather than System V style init.
So how do I tell systemd to force fsck at boot?

systemd-fsck is installed. The man page doesn't say how to invoke it.
Adding "fsck.mode=force" to the tail end of the command line in grub
didn't do it.

Thank you
