Charlotte Nichols

Member of Parliament for Warrington North



Charlotte Nichols grew up in Reading. She knows Warrington, her current constituency, well following numerous personal and professional visits ever since she visited family friends in the area as a child. After attending the University of Liverpool, she worked for the trade union Usdaw, and was directly involved in negotiating for improved pay and working conditions for employees at Hermes, Yodel, and XPO Logistics. After five years at Usdaw, Nichols moved to London to work on the secretariat for the APPG on Adult Social Care. Nichols converted to Reform Judaism in 2014 and has generally supported the Labour Party’s response to accusations of anti-Semitism. As well as working at Usdaw, she has served as a GMB officer, and is a proud trade unionist. Nichols identifies as LGBT+. She represents the Warrington North constituency with a 1,509 majority. In 2019, she was criticised for calling for Glaswegian Nazi-saluters to have their heads kicked in – she said: “I believe that fascism has to be physically confronted”. In 2020, Nichols was appointed shadow minister for women and equalities.
