Campaign Press Release: Yunus Bakhsh, a highly respected trade unionist from Newcastle, has won a four-year battle to clear his name after a landmark Employment Tribunal victory. Bosses at Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS Trust sacked the mental health nurse in 2008, claiming he had bullied and intimidated other workers. But in a scathing judgement the tribunal last week found that the Trust had unfairly dismissed Yunus for his trade union activities.
