Yunus Bakhsh could be fired within days

Issue No. 2104

High profile health trade unionist Yunus Bakhsh could be sacked this week after health bosses decided to press ahead with a disciplinary hearing against him – despite Yunus not being well enough to attend.

Yunus’s GP and the trust’s own occupational health specialists have all agreed that Yunus needs time to recover before being able to sit before such a panel.

Nevertheless bosses at Northumbria, Tyne and Wear NHS Trust decided to continue in his absence – rendering their hearing little more than a kangaroo court.
