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.
Join the demonstration:
1pm, Saturday 24th November. Assemble Peace Gardens, St Peter’s Square, behind Manchester town hall.
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.
Send a message of protest (see http://www.reinstate-karen.org/5.html for more information)
Sheila Foley, chief executive of the trust
Alan Johnson, secretary of state for health
Contact Manchester City councillors (the council funds part of the trust and two councillors sit on the board).
Please send copies to the branch (see http://www.reinstate-karen.org/5.html for more information)
