Health worker Karen Reissmann was pleased to attend the Unison union’s north west regional council meeting on Saturday of last week after a six-month break.

Karen was suspended from her democratically-elected positions on Unison’s national executive and health service group executive committees.

She had been a leading critic of the NHS pay deal that was missold to members by the leaderships of 13 health unions.

Hundreds of Unison branch officers and members signed a petition against her suspension.

Trade unionists also took photographs with signs demanding her reinstatement, and passed motions in branches.
