Campaigners against the closure of key wards at north London’s Whittington Hospital were holding a day of action on Thursday this week, focusing on a rally from 12 noon at the hospital.

Unison held their first meeting to discuss fighting the closure last week.

The meeting was addressed by local MP Jeremy Corbyn and Unison’s Karen Jennings.

Messages of support came in from union branches of teachers, firefighters, lecturers, hospital, civil service, bus and postal workers.

A “People’s Ballot” over the closures has begun at Holloway bus garage. For details go to
