18 Aug The Strong Defend the Weak and Defenceless In the Society
“When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.”
What is our purpose in life? We are here to create happiness and to support and help the weak. I believe in the universal struggle for human rights. I have been through a lot and I am still going through very hard and painful times. A journey that is not mine alone, but a journey worth fighting for, as it will provide hope and better health and home care services to all those who need it. However, I can not win this fight on my own and thus urge you to please join me in the fight to make this world a better place.
My story begins at my former work place. I was working as a Resource Planner for Individual Solutions SK, a private owned company in Stockport Council based in North West England. Our customers who were elderly people in need of help and home care depended on us to provide various services. My desire to help others finally came true enabling me to use my technical and analytical skills. I was disappointed by the poor working conditions. Problems between Resource Planners, Home Support Workers and management emerged a few months later due to bad management, planning and greed. Adults and vulnerable elderly people received lottery care. Many were not treated with dignity. Some of the adults and the elderly cried whilst speaking on the telephone saying that they were hungry. Some asked “Where is my carer?” Sometimes a carer could not be sent as there was no staff available. I and my colleagues were under constant pressure and stress. The staff sickness level in Individual Solutions SK increased tremendously,the sickness level in Individual Solutions SK peaked to 16.9% with some 41% of employees on a sick stage or another. The work atmosphere affected their health and private life! I did not realise that I was blowing the whistle when I reported the matter to the relevant authorities. I thought I was just doing my job when I reported my concerns to Individual Solutions SKs management, as well as the GMB Trade Union and made recommendations. Sadly, I discovered that the needs of the elderly and vulnerable adults were low on their list of priorities. On one particular day, I was racially abused on separate occasions by the son of one of our elderly clients who was unhappy with Individual Solutions SK services. I was told that “Abuse is part of the job!” by top management, who then threatened me not to go and see my Member of Parliament, saying that he knew people in the council who will deal with me.
I turned to Manchester’s Employment Tribunal for help, in the hope that the malpractice would be exposed but the tribunal ruled against me instead, despite the documented evidence in support of my case. They wouldn’t even hear a witness who had travelled 200 miles on my behalf.
Organisations and institutions that were expected to act according to the law turned against me. The Employment Tribunal Court used its discretion in law against me; the GMB has refused to support me with my current appeal or provide legal advice and support regarding the bullying and harassment I am still subject to; and I have received letters and emails containing very serious, unfounded allegations from Stockport Council that I immediately reported to the police. Stockport Council is now blackmailing me to accept their terms so as to secure continued employment. However, as this fight is for the weak and vulnerable, I am unable to turn a blind eye and my back on their suffering, change in law needs to happen so that those responsible for covering up malpractices, whether it be management, trade unions or anyone else, should be held accountable in a criminal court. Vulnerable Adults and Elderly, they need our support.
