Karen Reissmann sacked

Around 160 UNISON members in Manchester are on all-out indefinite strike to win the reinstatement of Karen Reissmann, the local nurse and UNISON rep who was sacked by her employer for speaking out in defence of the NHS.
Karen and her branch gave us magnificent support during our own dispute. Now they need our help.

Donate to their strike fund:
Send donations (payable to “Manchester Community and Mental Health UNISON”) to Union Office, Chorlton House, 70 Manchester Road, Manchester, M21 9UN.
Give donations to your rep to pass on.
