ABOUT
CHARLOTTE
NICHOLS


Whether opposing the development of Peel Hall, fighting for more funding for our schools, for good jobs, for safer streets or for an end to the leasehold scandal, my priority will always be to put the issues local people care about first, and to ensure our local community is at the heart of everything I do.



ABOUT
CHARLOTTE
NICHOLS


I have spent my entire career to date fighting for workers’ rights. With in-work poverty on the rise and zero-hours contracts becoming commonplace, as an MP I am campaigning against these exploitative workplace practices and fighting for better employment rights at every opportunity.

I have an active interest in the development of our country’s future industrial strategy with a particular emphasis on the creation of the good, green jobs.





I was elected as the MP for Warrington North in the early hours of the 13th December 2019 with a majority of 1,509.


Whether opposing the development of Peel Hall, fighting for more funding for our schools, for good jobs, for safer streets or for an end to the leasehold scandal, my priority will always be to put the issues local people care about first, and to ensure our local community is at the heart of everything I do.


One of my main policy areas of interest is adult social care and the rights of paid and unpaid carers. As an MP I am campaigning for improvements to the adult social care system and for a proper funding settlement that will finally reward and provide the recognition that our care workers deserve.

I serve on a number of All-Party Parliamentary Groups relevant to Warrington North including for Nuclear, Rugby League, Freight Haulage and Distribution, and Religion in the Media.




Away from politics

As a big fan of non-league football I have already been to show my support for Warrington Town FC and I will continue to do so.

And, as Warrington Wolves fan, you will often find me at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

I have entered this year’s London Marathon to raise money for the Warrington Wolves Charitable Foundation, and as part of my training, I am a regular at the Warrington Parkrun.

I live in Orford.

Before entering Parliament.


I have spent most of my adult life living in the North West. I have been coming to Warrington since I was a child to spend time with family friends in Culcheth.

Before entering Parliament, I worked for the trade union GMB and was involved in campaigning for better treatment for Amazon workers, against the imposition of ‘Contract Six’ in ASDA and making the case to government for investment in low carbon nuclear technology which will help secure the future of quality jobs in places like Sellafield and Wood Nuclear in Birchwood.

Prior to this, I worked for the trade union Usdaw, where I was directly involved in negotiations on the pay and conditions of workers in Warrington at the Hermes, Yodel and XPO Logistics depots.
