Karen Reissman speaking at a meeting on Tuesday after she had learned that she had been sacked by her employer, Manchester Mental Health & Social Care Turst, for speaking out against cuts and privatisation.
Her work colleagues in Unison are now on an indefinite official strike to secure her reinstatement.
A national demonstration has been called in her support on Saturday, November 24 at 1pm. Meeting place: Peace Gardens, off St Peters Square, behind the Town Hall, Manchester. Please try to get as many people there as possible. We cannot allow any health worker to be victinised for speaking out.
The pressure is on. Even the local newspaper, the Manchester Evening News, is attacking the Trust’s Chief Executive. This is a fight we can win.
