Reinstate sacked hospital rep Charlotte Monro

Issue No. 2383

Over 80 health workers and NHS activists protested outside Royal London Hospital, east London, on Wednesday of last week against the sacking of Charlotte Monro.

She is an occupational therapist and Unison union rep who worked at Whipps Cross Hospital—now part of Barts Health trust—for 26 years.

She has appealed but the result probably won’t be known until next week.

She was sacked after she talked to the Scrutiny Committee about staff worries over cuts at Barts Health. 

Bosses are slashing staff and wages because of the PFI debt that cost £2 million each week.

Bosses maintain that Charlotte was sacked for giving “inaccurate information” but have not said what this was.
