Ovation for whistleblower

  • Comment

A community psychiatric nurse, who lost her job after organising a campaign against cutbacks received a standing ovation at last week's Unison Healthcare Service Group Conference in Manchester.

Karen Reissmann (pictured), who was sacked by Manchester Mental Health and Social Care Trust last year, backed a motion calling for the protection of those who speak out about job losses.

She is now fighting a legal battle against the trust with an employment tribunal due to take place in the autumn.
