LEYF On My Doorstep?

I had worked with #AlevSagnak before and she recommended me to join Westminster Children Society (WCS) in 2009 when I was experiencing some amount of instability in my life. Since that time WCS has changed to London Early Years Foundation (LEYF Nurseries) and 5 years on am still working with LEYF. However I am more than glad to say I am happy to be back in South London – London Borough of Southwark after spending 5+ years working in Westminster at Luton Street Community Nursery. I covered in other settings across London. The best thing about my changing journey is that LEYF is expanding business from Westminster where the organisation started over 100+ years ago, to literally all the deprived areas of London, providing better outcomes for young children. And I am privileged to be working at the Bird In Bush Nursery (#BIB) that is situated literally on my doorstep in South East London. I started my journey in South London working in the early years’ sector after I had completed my studies at Lambeth College 1997-1999.

I am an older and wiser early years’ practitioner who has been embedded with the #LEYFethos from when I joined in September 2009. Now that I have achieved most of what I set out to accomplish as a practitioner, enhancing knowledge and expertise via studies and trainings. I am intent on using two of my hobbies that have given me some sense of purpose and pride in my ability – #photography and #writing to spread the #LEYF_DNA and my shared vision into my South London and to the world at large. Therefore I am more than prepared to use the knowledge and expertise I fought hard to gain to help spread the philosophy of LEYF as a beacon of good service provider to the United Kingdom and wider world. In so doing I will start by giving credit where credit is due to some of the extra ordinarily special persons who have travelled on my journey of discoveries with LEYF.

I am therefore going public so everyone can know that I will always be eternally grateful to those persons for inspiring, nurturing and empowering me to becoming the person who I am. The #reflectivepractitioner who developed the #listeningethos whom I have become to date. Because of my own personal experiences. Therefore I will have to start off saying a big thanks to #AlevSagnak_Hussein, who told me about the vacancy at WCS and the fact they were recruiting for practitioners with my level of qualifications in 2009. Believe me Alev and mark my words that if I should win the jackpot, I promise to take you out to my native Jamaica for some fun and frolics and to meet my family who are exactly like me.

Next on my list are some super colleagues whom I met at #FitzroviaCommunity Nursery where I first started. They are #CandyPatricia Sessions#OShana, Ezi and Claire Kilpatrick the deputy who started on the same day with me. Candy is in for special mention because she took me under her wings as a novice, taught me #ICT, how to do the #LearningJourneys and write up the Activity Planning Forms. Only a few weeks after starting at Fitzrovia, I re-established contact with #JoelleLax, now manager at #HolcroftNursery. I had previously worked with Joelle when she was only about 17 years old at #LambethWalk Day Nursery after I graduated from #LambethCollege. She recognised me all those years later as soon as she walked into the nursery and saw me, all these years after.

I later learned that Joelle was one of the youngest managers working for LEYF when she was appointed. It would be rather amiss of me if I did not mention working in partnership with other professionals and outside agencies from the Camden Town Local Education Authority. I was privileged to be given the opportunity to enhance knowledge via trainings and empowered to make my implicit knowledge explicit. The early years’ teacher who identified my passion in fulfilling my role as a #SENCO was forceful in ensuring I got the trainings to do the role to the best of my ability. And she did not just stop there, she taught me about Every Child A Talker (#ECAT), #StatutoryAssessment, Individual Education Plans (#IEP), Picture Exchange Communication System (#PECS), etc in the short space of time – 6 months that I was at Fitzrovia.

I am a believer in change and I was transferred to Luton Street where I was destined to spend 4+ years working with some exceptional, enthusiastic and passionate colleagues. These colleagues were the #epitomeofprofessionalism who have the children and their parent’s best interests at heart. #JulieWeise who was the manager is first in line for some special praises as she always showed her appreciations for the work I had done. Since she had the ears of the #CEO_JuneOSullivan, she was never stingy in telling her about the good practice that I contributed to, in providing quality standards of work especially my Learning Journeys and #HomemadeBooks.

The CEO in turn would be lavish with her praises for anyone whose work was of the highest standards, whenever she popped into any of the nurseries. However in spite of this, this is not to say Julie Weiss and I saw eye to eye, are were in agreement to everything. I guess in #hindsight I might now have to blame the generation gap and we never think twice about challenging each other. But we never lost sight of our different roles and responsibilities in the team and gave each other the #respect that were merited to do the job. We both knew we were responsible for being accountable for acting and working as professionals no matter our personal take on any matters to do with our working roles.

Keeping Abreast of Current Events in my Transitionas to Getting CLOSURES.
If anyone wants to read the rest of this, they will either have to go look for me on LinkedIn or as soon as I get my Google and Google AdWordsWordPress, etc, and website up. FacebookInstagramTwitterYouTube, and any other Social Media Networking Sites I can get myself involved in. Southwark Council, etc is another place to look, however I do not have the time yet to make the impacts that I would like.

Update: 16.10.2015

I was harassed, bullied and inimidated into removing this article by one of my detractors who told me at the time I knew nothing. She made some other negative comments that I won’t even publicise at this time. Because for someone who knows absolutely nothing about me or the work I’d done during 5+ years of dedicated services was beyond my ken. Now I am defying the bullies and putting the article back and be damned if they wish. My Fight4justice is for taking a stance for equal rights and justice for the vulnerable. I am celebrating #BlackHistoryMonth and showing I am no #COWARD!

I am proud of my heritage as I am discovering the #DNA that is part of my Roots. I was told that there was some German Blood, Mullattoo and I am questioning if there was Chinese as well. My cousin Osbourne Nembhardtwho is doing Our #FamilyTree reassured me there is 87% #African, some #Dutch and #Scottish! They are welcome to do their next best because I am a Fighter with the #MaroonBlood that Nanny of the Maroons and all the #NationalHeroes used to fight to defend Jamaica the Land of my Birth.
I am 1 Proud JAMAICAN who is going to stand up and fight for my principles, values and beliefs. No one is going to stitch me up and send me back to no #FundedPrison4Criminals – I am not a Criminal”. I might have a touch of “#MentalHealthIssues”, but they are responsible for pushing me over the edge!

27th October I celebrate the birthdate of my Father, Uncle and Auntie, 3 of my Grandmother Irene 16 children.

I survived the Employment Tribunal Service https://www.gov.uk/…/ms-m-myers-v-london-early-years-founda…. I am back at the Employment Appeals Tribunal, but I am hearing about #cavaet, after #JudgeClarke was given some dodgy fact. I have had HMRC breach my human rights. As for theDepartment for Work and Pensions – DWP, they and Universal Credit need seeing to by scammers. The Metropolitan Police Service is in the dog’s house for letting Winsome Duncan: Author, Artist & Book Confidence Coachput such a noble institution into disrepute. The Ministry of Justice UK seems to be breaching the GDPR For UK as they seem to be acting as unprofessional in their dealing with me like #LEYF? I tried taking out petition after writing #OpenLetters. The rest is history…

So I see that Bully Boy Neil King from @LEYF can’t keep away from my Social Media. Wonder if he’s found what he’s looking for? Evidence I don’t have DISABILITY & if Proven @LEYF used Proportionate measures to get Legitimate Aim. What was that…? And please Layman’s terms as I don’t have any Legal Knowledge.

@LEYF did tink dem was going to Drive me MAD to commit CRIMINAL Offence, but pity they don’t know who they were dealing with? If Bent John learn to READ yet maybe BB can Print off this & give him to see what he makes of it? Now @LEYF know why Bates Wells Braithwaite drop the Loaded Gun before it explode in their Brains. Pity I delete the foto of Us – CEO Cassava & MM when @LEYF tried setting me up to write about Cassava for Bulletin. I Walk most of time instead of Run & only my grand aunt was named Mrs Loretta KING-WALKER. Badmind & Grudgeful is a Psychopathic Tendencies!

Fight4justice My #DefensivePractice at the ready for the Employment Appeals TribunalLEYF Nurseries can do whatever they please, they can’t stop me. No one could stop my Mother until GOD was ready for her…

UNISON, I Promised…?

This is institutional discrimination at the heights of the establishments and systems

Shared a memory. 17 mins · 

130 Euston Road
London NW1 2AY
1st August 2017

In line with the recent “UNISON’s Tribunal Fee Verdict is a Victory for Everyone in Work” on Wednesday 26th July 2017, published on social media and for which I have a copy. I would like to draw your attention to former member, Mervelee Myers’ letter dated July 30, 2006. UNISON Kings College Hospital Unison Branch, KCH Joint Union Offices, Ground Floor Bessemer Wing. Just in case it disappeared like what happened to my Confidential Data at London Early Years Foundation (LEYF Nurseries), 1st September 2009 – 27th September 2015, I will enclose a copy.

I am understanding of the fact that the fees will backdated to 2013. Therefore I would like to bring to your attention the case of Mrs Mervelee Myers v King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust 2009 – 2010. I was forced to resign from my job in November 2008, after the discrimination in the workplace triggered and exacerbated my Childhood Traumas into Post Truamatic Stress Disorders (#PTSD). I would be grateful if you could check the records for my Membership to ascertain why UNISON failed to provide the support in their manifesto aggreement to members.

I had no alternatives left but to resign from my job to to save my life. And to resign from UNISON when they colluded with KINGS to trigger my Hidden Disabilities into Mental Health Conditions. Stastictics from research states that 1 in 5 of all suicides are associated with unemployment. HCT Group Impact Report 2016 – Changing Times, Lasting Impact www.hctgroup.org page 9, have my photographas a spread. I am also in another group photos on another page. In case of any doubts, I have thrown out my paperwork from the case, but doing research, I came across #MerveleeMyers. I don’t have much documents and correspondences, leading up to the case from 2004 to 2009. And after the Employment Tribunal judgement in 2010.

However, I have enough of my Defensive Practice to prove that UNISON colluded with KINGS to trigger my Hidden Disability of Chronic Anxiety that was diagnosed on the 18th July 2006 into Disabilities covered under the Equality Act, 2010 /2015. Strangely enough I had to get the diagnosis because although I have all the signs and symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease, my GP said I did not have a diagnosis, so I could not get a Medical Report. I needed proof of my disabilities to present to the The Open University. When I was doing the Examination for the UNISON sponsored Health & Social Care Level 2 course. By doing this course, this was how I gained the knowledge which I used to empower myself to try and manage and control my disabilities and Medical Conditions #holistically.

I changed my entire lifestyle and weaned myself off prescription medication #VALIUM. Because I realised I could become addicted to prescription medication. I went on to live a more fulfilling life, getting on with my work and hoping to advance in my career. But this was not to be because of how UNISON acted unprofessionally and colluded to discriminate against me. UNISON is responsible for my my #ChildhoodTrauma of Chronic Anxiety been triggered into #MentalHealthConditions in the first instance at KINGS. Secondly, they refused to offer me the support I needed to resolve the workplace issues when I raised concerns.

This was in breach of the Employment Tribunal Law, Regulations and Legislations, and the aggreement I signed when I joined the union. The Union Rep was sat in on the Meeting when the manager of KINGS, #GlendalynVernaAboagye was bribed to deny any knowledge of my #disabilities. This was despite my recent diagnosis on the 18th July 2006. The Union Rep also overide my argument about the letter I sent to the #HumanResources HR Department on the 18.11.2006. I have a copy of the stamped letter if you need verification.

Over a period of time from when I raised concerns UNISON, Union Reps resigned their post and in frustration I resigned my #Membership before going to the Employment tribunals. It was just too much for me dealing with studies, the sudden illness and death of my brother. Dealing with answering correspondences from the Local Educational Authority and London Borough of Southwark SEND SECTION. They that colluded with KINGS to ruin my career and destroy my #EmotionalWellbeing as a Disabled Employee. My colleagues and parents were sanctioned to make allegations against me. The experience lasting from 2004 when I faced discrimination of a personal nature in my private life as well as having to go public to www.icsouthlondon.co.uk left me traumatised.

I was diagnosed with an #AbnormalPapsmear needing treatment… for the next 5 years triggered the PTSD from my childhood. The allegations left me feeling #paranoid and confused that I was going #MAD. I have an Auntie who experienced Mental Health Conditions, triggered by similar circumstances. She was destined to spend the rest of her life wondering the streets, visiting her families. She died on the streets, hit down by a truck, and never recovered. I thought I was liable to commit #CriminalActs like my brother who #diedinprison.

Not recognising the person they were alleging I had become over the years, I self-referred to Occupational Health. I was seen by 2 NHS Professionals, female and male. I was passed fit to return to work, but the discrimination escallated, because I had the courage of my convictions to raise concerns to protect vulnerable children and colleagues. This was in line with me developing my Continuing Personal Professional Development Plan (#CPPDP) to becoming a graduate of the Open University, graduated in May 2009. The discrimination caused me to end up in Accident and Emergency (A & E) at Kings College Hospital. But I was refused a Medical Report.

Later my GP who diagnosed my Chronic Anxiety done the same and refused to give me a Medical Report for the Employment Tribunal Service. When I raised concerns UNISON did not offer me any support. Their actions over the years exacerbated my Childhood Traumas into Mental Health Conditons – Disabilities. I would like UNISON to take the opportunity to review my case in light of their triumph “UNISON’s Tribunal Fee Verdict is a Victory for Everyone in Work”. Otherwise I will be doing my research like I done and discovered I am part of Dr Maria Hudson of the Policy Studies Institute Research Paper: The Experience of Discrimination on Multiple Grounds as recommended for Acas at www.acas.org/researchpapers.

As you can see Dr Hudson made recommendations that were not implemented or else I would not have had to take another employers LEYF at www.leyf.org.uk to the Employment Tribunals. I am sure that you will not be surprised to hear that Voice: the union for education professionals www.voicetheunion.org.uk has done exactly what UNISON done to me before. Each time I am discriminated against is after I experienced incidents that can trigger the PTSD and Hidden Disabilities that blighted my life from the time I reached #Puberty onwards. I was left with no alternative excepting me taking LEYF to the ET despite knowing I have to face the trauma of representing myself. To stop them doing to me what KINGS, UNISON and the #establishments and #systems done with the miscarriage of justice that was allowed to happen, by UNISON.

The UK government seem hellbent on a vendetta against me, because I refuse to be a voiceless vulnerable victim and letting them getting away with institutional discrimination. The Department for Work and Pensions – DWPHMRCMetropolitan Police ServiceMinistry of Justice UK are just some involved in the institutional discrimination. This is despite my #OpenLetters to David CameronBates Wells BraithwaiteDaily ExpressTheresa May and Neil Coyle MP. I tried taking out #Petition, but to no avail.

In light of the recent changes in the Rules of Laws from the Equality Act 2010 to the Modern Day Slavery Act of 2015, I would like UNISON to review my case. I am now giving UNISON 2 weeks from the date of this letter/email to inform me how they will address the discrimination that they sanction and colluded with KINGSS. I am only a #LayPerson who was forced to empower myself, so I am not sure about where I stand on this with regards to dates and Legal Arguments. However these are the breaches that I am thinking about seeking Legal Advice about from my Barrister:
• Dues from I joined to when I was forced to resign
• Fees for representing myself at the Employment Tribunals
• Compensation of the £4,000.00 + interests accummulated over the years that was offered too late for me to consider and have a choice to avoid the indignity I experienced representing myself at the Tribunals
• Compensation for destroying my career through blacklisting and networking
• Pension Pot added that I would have accummulated over the years I worked since.

It is a well known fact that UNISON still continue to collude with employers, especially the NHS to discriminate against VULNERABLE employees. I have the #CaseStudy to prove. If I do not hear from UNISON within the time specified, I will be getting in touch with my BARRISTER for advice about going PUBLIC. I want UNISON to put their money where their mouth is by adhering to the Rules of Law and in particularly their “Our Statement on Modern Slavery”. UNISON General Secretary Dave Prentis said: “The government is not above the law. But when ministers introduced fees they were disregarding laws many centuries old, and showing little concern for employees seeking justice following illegal treatment at work”.

Now does UNISON want me to prove that they had acted unlawfully, and has been proved wrong – not just on simple economic, but on constitutional law and basic fairness too?

Kindest regards.
