Strike ballot for suspended nurse
Karen Reissman
The ballot will open on Wednesday
Almost 700 health workers in Manchester are to be balloted to see whether they will strike in protest at the suspension of a nurse.

Karen Reissman was suspended by Manchester Mental Health trust five weeks ago.

Unison claims she is being targeted because she is a shop steward and has spoken out against cuts in services

The union will launch the ballot on Wednesday and it will close again on 9 August. The results will follow later.
