IKEA, the retail furniture giant, has announced that it will CUT sick pay for unvaccinated employees who are forced to quarantine after being exposed to Covid-19 in the United Kingdom!
That’s right: In the ongoing global effort to discriminate against unvaccinated people, massive corporations like IKEA are taking things to the next level, and planning to deprive working people of the pay they’re entitled to simply because of their vaccination status!
That’s why we’re asking you to SIGN and SHARE this petition calling on IKEA’s executive leadership to discontinue any unfair policies that target unvaccinated workers and threaten them with reduced pay, or face a worldwide boycott of their stores and products.
This new policy will strip unvaccinated IKEA employees who have come in contact with someone who’s tested positive for Covid-19 and, therefore, forced to isolate themselves, from well over half of their normal sick pay.
According to a report from Daily Mail, IKEA workers in the U.K. make, on average, between £404 and £452 per week. However, under the corporation’s ridiculous new Covid policy, they can expect to make about £96.35 instead — just because they’ve chosen against getting the vaccine.
To be clear: As the Omicron variant continues to rise, it’s become more and more obvious that the Covid-19 vaccine is largely ineffective at preventing transmission and infection of the virus.
And it also goes without saying that everyone, everywhere should be able to opt against getting this experimental shot — be it for medical, ethical, faith-based, or simply personal reasons — without it affecting their ability to make a living and provide for their families.
But, as things currently stand, it would appear that IKEA executives disagree.
So let’s let them know where WE stand, and that, until they revoke this misguided, discriminatory pay policy, we will NOT continue to patronize their company or use their products any longer.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition calling on IKEA’s leadership to abandon this policy (and any future policies) that would, in any way, discriminate against employees in the U.K. for choosing against getting vaccinated for Covid-19.
