Around 100 trade unionists from the Unison, Amicus, PCS, UCU, NUT, T&G and GMB unions demonstrated outside the meeting room of Newcastle Trusts headquarters on Wednesday of last week. They were protesting at the summary suspension of NHS activist Yunus Bakhsh.

Hospital bosses know that to carry out New Labour’s NHS reforms and privatisation drive they must take on those like Yunus who are mounting a fight back. This is the reason for the solidarity with Yunus shown by so many different trade unionists.

Protest to chief executive Alan Hall, e-mail [email protected] or write to Alan Hall, Chief Executive, Northumberland Tyne and Wear Trust, St Nicholas Hospital, Gosforth, Newcastle NE3 3XT. Fax messages of support for Yunus to 0191 256 3171.
