Men fight and lose the battle, and the thing that they fought for comes about in spite of their defeat, and when it comes turns out not to be what they meant, and other men have to fight for what they meant under another name. (William Morris - A Dream of John Ball)

Charlotte Monro reinstated - a victory for UNISON

Delegates who will soon gather in Liverpool for UNISON Health Conference ‎will be able to celebrate an important victory for UNISON in the health service; the reinstatement of victimised whistleblower, Charlotte Monro.

UNISON fully supported legal action which contributed to Charlotte's reinstatement, in a great victory for workers' rights, public services and our NHS.

This case shows that we cannot simply rely upon "partnership" with employers to defend our members - and that we need to work with vigorous and diverse community campaigns (such as the campaign which saved Lewisham hospital).

Our General Secretary, Dave Prentis, reported this important victory to our National Executive Council (NEC) yesterday and confirmed that UNISON would be publicising this excellent result.
