Health workers lobby for Karen Reissmann

Issue No. 2085

Mental health workers in Manchester plan to lobby health minister Ivan Lewis MP this Friday as part of their campaign for the reinstatement of nurse and union activist Karen Reissmann.

Karen’s Unison union is encouraging MPs – particularly those sponsored by it’s Labour Link organisation – to support an early day motion (EDM443), from John Leech MP, in her support.

Trade unionists across Britain should raise Karen’s case with their local MPs.

Protest at Ivan Lewis’s surgery, 5pm, Friday 25 January, 381 Bury New Road, Prestwich, Manchester, M25

Send messages of support to Manchester community and mental health Unison branch, 70 Manchester Road, M21 9UN
