Reinstate Karen Reissmann!



Karen Reissmann, trade union activist in the mental health sector in Manchester has been sacked by management in what looks like a clear case of victimisation. Karen's "crime" has been to be too effective and outspoken in her opposition to privatization and cuts in the NHS.

A website has been set up by the campaign to get Karen reinstated -

Karen's Unison branch is solidly behind the strike action which began yesterday.

It is important that donations flood in from union branches, trades councils and individuals to sustain the action.

There is a solidarity rally next Wednesday 14th Nov at 7pm in Manchester and
a Demo in Manchester Peace Gardens, Sat 24th Nov, 1pm.

Messages of support can be sent to unison@zen.co.uk.

Complaints can be sent to Sheila Foley, Chief Executive of the Health Trust
at sheila.foley@mhsc.nhs.uk

If the NHS Trust are allowed to get away with this it will set a dangerous precedent for all workers in the public sector. The IWW and the Green Party Trade Union Group have both started to mobilize support in their spheres of influence.

An injury to one is an injury to all!
