The health boss who sacked Karen Reissmann and started an all-out strike by 180 staff has jetted off on holiday to Dubai.

Sheila Foley boss who sacked whistleblower Karen ReissmannSheila Foley, £100,000-a-year chief executive of the Manchester Mental Health and Social Care Trust, flew out as staff gathered around braziers on picket lines outside the Trust’s headquarters.

Before she left for the sun, Ms Foley had sacked UNISON shop steward Karen Reissmann for speaking out against cuts and privatisation.

A spokesperson for the ‘Reinstate Karen Reissmann’ campaign said: “Ms Foley should call off her holiday immediately and return to Britain to settle the strike she started by giving Karen her job back.

“While Karen is left out in the cold with 180 colleagues, leaving dozens of patients anxious and fearful, Ms Foley disappears off to the sunshine without a ‘by your leave’! It’s an utter disgrace.

“No wonder Karen felt she had to speak out if this is the kind of uncaring and irresponsible management in charge of mental health services to some of the most vulnerable people.”

The Manchester Evening News carried the story of Ms Foley’s disappearance to Dubai on their front page today under the headline: ’STRIKE ROW BOSS IN DESERT STORM’. You can read it here.

    I just cannot believe the way employers are behaving in today’s modern (mis)management system. The way this Trust has behaved towards both patients and staff is appalling but why does that not surprise me? Even if she goes to an Employment Tribunal, they pay her off (she has no choive other than a Judicial Review) and refuse to give her her job back, then make a conditional gagging order – problem solved. The Fire Service is doing it all the time – abuse of the Employment Laws and public money not mention public trust. Yet this Government continues to let this happen – LET? In my opinion they are the biggest instigators of this sort of abuse!!!
