Tribunal hears praise for Yunus Bakhsh

Issue No. 2198

The employment tribunal into the sacking of nurse and union activist Yunus Bakhsh recommenced this week.

On Monday Peter Chapman, the Unison union full-time officer originally assigned to Yunus’s case, gave evidence.

He told the panel that Yunus was “One of the most accomplished trade unionists I had come across in 35 years.”

The case is now moving towards its conclusion.
