Defend union rep at Whipps Cross Hospital

Issue No. 2363

A Unison union rep and campaigner at Whipps Cross Hospital in east London has been threatened with disciplinary action by bosses at Barts Health Trust.

Charlotte Monro has been barred from representing members at the Trust’s staff consultative forum and accused of breach of confidentiality and conflict of interest. 

Health workers and campaigners believe bosses are attacking the union because they want to cut at least 1,000 jobs across the Trust. The union’s branch committee voted to take every action necessary to stop the attack.
