ANTIGUA TRADES & LABOUR UNION

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Further to our press release of 16th September 2021, the Antigua Trades and Labour
Union wish to make it pellucid that its intention was not to create confrontation at
any workplace, but simply to ensure that if Permanent Secretaries or Managers
intends to implement the Government’s Mandatory Vaccination Policy, that the
employees would leave the workplace peacefully.

In consideration of the Prime Minister’s response to our release, we are asking
ALL EMPLOYEES to stay at home on Monday 20th and Tuesday 21st, September
2021 in protest of the Government’s Mandatory Vaccination policy, which we
consider to be unreasonable.

We will provide further update on the way forward by Monday 20th September 2021.

  1. The union should be providing leadership to their members and urging them to get vaccinated. Instead they issue the most pathetic call aimed at the lowest level of worker. Why arenโ€™t the unions acting like actual unions and calling for a strike for safe working conditions and for stay at home pay?

    • ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ™„
      Every body has a choice. Just like you made a choice to take the vaccine there are those who are not comfortable in it as yet hence the reason they are not vaccinated yet. I disagree with your comment.
      These people are entitled to share and display their displeasure; just as if you are displeased with something you would express it. They are doing it in the form of strike, you prefer them to express violently?

      What people should do is try to understand reasons behind of the situations of each persons. Some are: religious, medical and etc.

      ~END~

      • Who nah work nah get pay. There’s no legal obligation to compensate striking workers. The government already has it hard to pay salaries as it is and I’m sure they’d be glad to take these folks off pay roll. And up to now y’all aren’t comfortable with getting vaccinated even though so much info out there on them and people have been getting vaccinated for however long? I just hope y’all lose your pay as you keep up this anti-vax ish. If you refuse or are “hesitant” to get the shot as cases continue to climb and we have seen the efficacy of the vaccines, you are an anti- vaxxer. Btw, I’ll be at work.

        • Yeah cause he a thief all the money foe himself duuhhhh thata why our dunce and cheap government is involved in this VACCINATION scam. he gets money each time a person get vaccinated that’s why he coercing so many people.๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ yall dont even know the half of it but I’ll let you find out. He rather money than the lives of our citizens then wanna make it seem like he cares about people well being. And you just as headless ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

    • Urging? No one urged you so why shouldn’t they have a choice? What makes you more entitled to a choice than people who choose not to put something in their body that seems sketchy? SMH. Everyone has a right to exercise their rights to choose just like you. Maybe you were urged but at The end of the day you still made a choice to get vaccinated so that’s great for you.

      • No one is taking away your choice. You have a choice. You can choose to get vaccinated or you can choose to stay home. Simple

        • Taking away people rights to earn an honest living? TO support and feed their families and themself? You sound just like this oppressive government. He is taking away the rights to choice because ultimatums are involved. Take these or else is what is happening and that’s a choice? Vaccinated people act like the vaccine has truly damaged your a ability to have COMMON sense and think for yourself. But the time will come.

      • Iโ€™m vaccinated with Moderna but Iโ€™m not so sure Iโ€™d do it again if given the choice

        Also thereโ€™s no way Iโ€™d take the AZ or sinopharm vaccines if that was the only choice.

        And given the data showing all of these vaccines have failed to end the pandemic in places highly vaccinated forcing people to take these vaccines seems especially egregious

  2. The unions should encourage their workers to get vaccinated before half of the work force dies from this thing, and we have to bring in vaccinated foreign worker to run the place.

    • Dies from what? The vaccine you mean? Yessss๐Ÿ˜‚ cause is what shit you chatting. Foreign whooooo? And lib wey? So yu think us as oppressed locals go allow that? The government need to remember that the people have him this job much and he’s so horrible at it. THE UNIONS DON’T NEED TO ENCOURAGE ANYONE TO TAKE ANYTHING THEY CAN MAKE THAT CHOICE ON THEIR OWN BUT THEY WON’T BECAUSS IF YOU RESEARCHED AND EDUCATEX YOURSELF YOU WOULD KNOW THAT THE VACCINE DOES NOT MAKE A DIFFERENCE. YOU CAN STILL CATCH, TRANSMIT IT, GET HOSPITALIZED AND DIE WITH THE VACCINE. MAYBE EVEN FASTER THAN UNVACCINATED INDIVIDUALS SO GO DRINK CHARCOAL TO CLEAN OUT THE SPIKE PROTEINS AND SHUT UP๐Ÿ˜

  3. All of you who has dis an dat to bout the unions, I hope the day never comes that they have to represent you, God have mercy on you

  4. This vaccine mandate has become very politicize and from what I know any Drug that is made by science has side effects plus the vaccine should stop the virus not allow me to still catch it and still spread itโ€ฆ. so quit trying to take the people rights of making a choice of what they want in there bodies. Stop blaming the unvaccinated blame them rich cocksucker whole leak this virus to the world and now blaming people who donโ€™t want yโ€™all drugs or vaccine whatever you call it gain a function.

    • WELLLLL SAID. Aryu love play God tooooooooo much. This was all a scam from THE get get go. The lockdown to frustrate and get people desperate and then bring out The VACCINE and because people are still so reluctant WHEN WE CLEARLY DON’T NEED IT, wanna force us. Bullshit. The oppresser of the people who ancestors were oppressed is a black man. A black man. Selfish no good son of bitch.

  5. Can the union tell us on what grounds are they protesting? And since the lives of the citizens & residents of this nation is at a risk, what would they present as an alternative measure

  6. The wage bill need to be reduced anyway.!!!!! Somethings just make no darn sense. This is a spur of the moment decision. Clearly not well thought out!!!!

    • I’d say it’s good. Everywhere needs to do it cause clearly these government think they are GOD or ppl mumma fa dey tell them what to take and what not to take. E nahhhhhh happen.

  7. Govt workers don’t work anyway. No one will miss them. The offices will run like they normally do, inefficient with poor/no customer service. Nobody cares.

    • Yeah cause the government dont pay so why would they put in good effort anyways? He well a thief all the money where he dey. While locals suffering he swimming in money and gets more for each person vaccination. Vaccinated kids and will just for money but I know for a fact his son ain’t vaccinated and neither is GASTON so you guys got fooled to the max.

  8. So with this bold policy of sending home unvaccinated workers, does the government have the funds at hand to pay severance. If a worker is sent home without pay, that worker has been suspended. Based on the Labour Code, a worker cannot be suspended for a period longer than 4 weeks. After that, it is a case of constructive dismissal. The dismissed workers will be entitled to their severance pay

      • People stilllllll waiting n stimulus. Awdfyt he nah give are a shit but now people can sue him TIL he hun white for mandating this vaccine with SO MANY FLAWS.

      • If a worker shows up to work and that worker is sent home (suspended), in what context did the worker abandon his/her job?

    • The Government is not sending anyone home. They tell them to get vaccinated or don’t come to work. The workers have a choice. So if they choose not to take the vaccine and stay home that is on them. No severance will be payed because the workers made their choice. UNDERSTAND?
