Defend Yunus Bakhsh

Issue No. 2083

Supporters of Yunus Bakhsh, the leading health trade unionist who has suffered a long-running victimisation by his employers for union activity, are planning a major fundraising operation on his behalf.

An employment tribunal is set to hear Yunus’s case against Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS trust at a hearing on 31 March.

Yunus’s Unison union has declined legal support to him for the hearing, and so he will be forced to pay for his own lawyer. Already thousands of pounds have been raised for this purpose, but many more will be needed.

Rush donations and messages of support to the Defend Yunus Bakhsh campaign, 46c Lawe Road, South Shields, Tyne & Wear, NE33 2EN. Email:
