Stephen Andrew statement on medical segregation

Well it’s started, just as many predicted as far back as February 2020. Two big players in Queensland’s private sector economy, Deloitte and Suncorp, have sent emails to all their staff, telling them that from 1 January 2022, vaccination will be mandatory for ALL employees, including delivery drivers, contractors, consultants, and anyone else wishing to access their premises.
In what looks to be the State’s first two test cases for workers not directly involved in the frontline or service sectors, the two multi-national giant corporations’ announced exclusionary workplace policies this week, that will send shockwaves around the state. If allowed to stand, the decision of these two mega-wealthy companies could see medical segregation in the workplace become the norm for Queensland – permanently.
The two, one a member of the ‘Big Four’ global accountancy firms, and the other a billion-dollar bank, have told their workers, they will be banned from coming to work and from attending work events unless they can provide bosses with proof they are “fully vaccinated” – whether this will include quarterly booster shots as well is not clear.
Deloitte reportedly told workers that following discussions with other members of the “Big Four”, the policy was agreed on, although only Deloitte have announced it publicly. Deloitte also hilariously told its workers in their email, that the company remains committed to the principle of workplace “inclusion”, so at this stage, they are not planning to actually sack workers who don’t comply – just EXCLUDE them from the workplace!
This exclusion and segregation of workers from their workplaces and fellow workmates, forcing them to stay cooped up at home and alone, is truly abhorrent. Numerous studies have shown that human interaction and peer bonding are vital for people’s mental health and self-esteem, especially when it comes to young people.
The mental health bill for all these crimes being committed in the name of “public health”, will be catastrophic – far outstripping that of C***d.
Anyone who cares about the well-being of their fellow Queenslanders, and who has accounts or does business with these two companies, should let them know in no uncertain terms that policies of hate and vilification have no place in this State.
They are reprehensible and should be strongly condemned by the whole community.

Stephen Andrew statement on the future of the union movement

John Wilson, the former Queensland State Secretary and ex-President of the Trades Hall Council is incandescent with rage at what he calls the ‘sell out’ of the working class by Australia’s Union Leadership over the past 18 months.
“They’ve SAID NOTHING and they’ve DONE NOTHING” he thundered. “They are FULLY on board with this agenda”.
“They are PART OF this SELLOUT – they’re part of it and there is going to be a reckoning.”
“They will not survive this”. “They are finished”.
Wilson’s words came as Victoria’s construction workers and tradies unleashed their own fury at unions, specifically the CFMMEU, for their failure to initiate any stop-work actions over the mandatory vaccination orders their members are now subject to. Construction workers in Victoria have been told by the Dan Andrews government that they must have at least one jab by this Thursday, or face the loss of their jobs and livelihoods. Many have mortgages to pay and kids to support and the orders have been a devastating blow to the hard-working members of the industry. They are absolutely furious that their union reps are basically sitting on their hands and letting it happen.
Not a single union – not the Building unions, the Nurses Unions, Firefighters Union, or Police Union – have stood up for their workers over these draconian mandates in clear violation of the Nuremburg Code. Go to any union websites and like every other institution in the country, they are completely silent on the issue.
After being slammed by their rank and file in recent days, a couple have mouthed a few weak platitudes on people’s right to choose, but not a single one has seriously stood up and challenged the government or fought for their members’ rights.
Wilson, whose father was a life member of the Maritime Union, boasts a long family history of ties to the Australia’s union movement, says now he is done with the lot of them.
“There is going to be a reckoning in this country” he said. “When the tide turns, as it is now, there will be a reckoning and it will be ‘Goodbye’ to the trade union movement in this country AND the Labor Party – and good bloody riddance to the lot of them”.
“They are ‘scabs’ to the working class of the trade union movement. They’ll go to their graves as ‘scabs’ to the working class.”
