Human face of ‘no jab no job’ in care homes

Many staff resisted mandates, knowing they could be sacked


by NIALL McCRAE

ONE in ten of the care home workforce held out against the government’s ‘no jab no job’ law, which was enforced on 11 November.

They resisted the course of injections, knowing that they faced the sack.

Fortunately, many joined the Workers of England, the trade union defending workers against the callous covid regime. Leading to the vaccination deadline, I alone represented almost 300 members in their hour of need. We are fighting every case, and expect to win sooner or later. Already we have saved over 300 jobs by using the Equality Act.


The Workers of England Union have represented many of these brave workers.

fighting to protect the employment rights of those who chose to resist an experimental gene altering therapy and the illegal enforcement of the vaccine mandate, itself illegal under international law.

The carers coming to us are mostly female and of all ages and ethnicities. When the government picked on this sector for the first occupational vaccine mandate, they thought that these women would take an offer they could not refuse.

But while thousands relented to coercion, a significant minority stood their ground.

Who are they, personally? I observed some common character traits. First, they are highly principled, with too much integrity to take a jab that clearly prevents neither infection nor transmission, or for cowardice masked as virtue.

Not intellectual in the accredited way, they are more awake than the vast majority of society. Their knowledge of covid, the vaccines and the globalist plan is in stark contrast to that of their peers and managers who follow the narrative without question.

Their outlook is not merely common sense, of which they are well endowed, but critical reasoning. They are not easily fooled, and saw the propaganda of fear and control for what it is. As unvaccinated workers, they frequently cover for vaccinated colleagues off sick with covid (or adverse vaccine reactions).

Some took strength from God, others from a humanistic commitment to freedom and choice.

But most importantly, they came across as the most genuinely caring of people. After working through the covid crisis in care homes last year (caused by the government’s evicting older patients from hospital), they continued to care for residents despite knowing that they would be rewarded with dismissal. Often in hearings their wonderful work was acknowledged.

So who are the managers sacking them? Mostly the final ‘consultation’ meetings were conducted by senior managers or directors, knowing that they would be challenged by an assertive trade union rep versed in the law and ethics.

Many managers were decent, genuinely regretting the situation forced on them by the powers-that-be.

Some were keen to accept the Workers of England exemption certificate, but generally they failed to understand that fundamental rights cannot be overridden by the flick of a pen in Whitehall or the latest diktat by the Care Quality Commission.

They conflated guidelines with the law, thinking that the covid pass is a formality despite having no legal force. After years of spouting politically correct messages of equality and diversity for their own promotion, they showed themselves to be woefully unaware of the Equality Act.


I regret to report that some senior managers appeared to relish their role in dumping employees who they viewed as misinformed or selfish. A consolation for members exposed to this contempt was the bloody nose these arrogant bosses got from the trade union advocate. These hubristic men and women hated being taken down a peg or two.


The government did everything it could to stymie the efforts of the Workers of England. Too many good carers have been sacked, and residents have lost their best friends. But for them this is just the end of the beginning. We are taking every unlawful dismissal to an employment tribunal. The one in ten shall surely prevail.


Ed: The question now remains, who is going to be found accountable for the enforcement of this draconian legislation and the unfounded sacking of up to 60,000 care home and community care staff?

The Government, in a typical side-step have placed the onus on the care home managers who did their bidding but are now going to be held accountable and liable for the undoubtedly high costs of unfair dismissal, constructive dismissal and employment law abuse. And believe me, Employment Tribunals are not inclined to side with the government, they are determined that employment law is upheld and breeches pounced on.

This is going to be a costly and drawn out process of legal cases and recriminations and the Government will say that the care home managers are the guilty party.
