Open Letter to the Communication Workers Union

Read Time:12 Minutes

Below we publish a letter from CWU members in Hampshire that has not received a response since it was sent on 30 January 2023. The letter calls on the CWU to rescind its support for the novel Covid vaccines in the face of extensive evidence that they are harming its members. The members hope by publishing in full here, the letter will receive a response.

To Dave Joyce – CWU National Health and Safety and Environment Officer.

Dear Dave,

We are writing to you concerning the CWU’s support for the experimental coronavirus vaccines.*

As you are probably aware, these novel vaccines are controversial and do not enjoy universal endorsement by the international medical profession and that evidence and opinion is building in Britain and internationally which is critical of these vaccines.

We are concerned because the CWU are not health experts and vaccines are not the Union’s area of expertise and the CWU is taking a risk in endorsing them and therefore, unfortunately, taking a risk with the health of CWU members.

We hope that you can see CWU support for these novel vaccines is placing the Union in an ividious position and possibly liable for future claims.

We believe this is the first time in British history that pharmaceutical drugs have been released on the British public without having been trialled in the traditional way, and without being submitted to the usual legal requirements for being licensed for use in Britain.

Therefore, no one can possibly know if these novel vaccines are really safe and effective, despite Government, NHS, regulators’ and pharmaceutical companies’ claims.

We believe CWU endorsement of these experimental vaccines could be interpreted as conflicting with the following CWU Health & Safety policy:


We would like to bring to your attention the occurrence of the following adverse reactions to the vaccines amongst local CWU members: heart attacks, persistent extreme headaches, nausea, vomiting, vertigo, severe heart and chest pains, difficulty walking, breathing difficulties, neuropathy in feet, severe pain in liver, severe general back pain, temporary incapacitation, persistent viral infections, Bell’s palsy, alopecia, and anaemia.

We can confirm the occurrence of the following adverse reactions to the vaccines amongst local CWU members’ families: collapse of red blood platelet count, death.

We can also confirm the occurrence of the following adverse reactions to the vaccines amongst local CWU members’  families, friends and neighbours: diabetes, giant cell arteritis, neuropathy in feet, sight loss, permanent and life-threatening liver damage, heart attacks, blood clot in heart, blood clots in leg, leg amputation above the knee, cancers, deaths.

For the above reasons, for the sake of the health of CWU members, their families, friends and communities and to place the CWU on the right side of history, we request that you review and suspend your endorsement of these novel vaccines until a truly independent review of their safety and effectiveness has been carried out. 

We also request that you promote and encourage the logging of vaccine-related injuries and deaths of CWU members and their family members using the official Yellow Card Reporting surveillance system. And for the CWU to initiate its own register of vaccine-injured and vaccine-bereaved CWU members and members’ families and to make this register easily accessible to CWU members for them to make entries.

We also request that you promote the Vaccine Injuries Compensation Scheme amongst CWU members and to support CWU members and their families in their applications for compensation; for both vaccine-injured and vaccine-bereaved families of CWU members.

We also request you promote the UK CV Family self-help and support group for the vaccine injured amongst CWU members and their families.

Such policies, once adopted could be implemented at local level by CWU Health & Safety representatives, and overseen and monitored at Branch, Regional and National Level; providing the necessary resources to ensure implementation and make a positive impact on CWU members, their families and communities.

Please find below a list of Resources which you may or may not be aware of and which shed further light on the whole issue and have been useful resources for us. And a FYI list with references.

Please email your reply to us all, as this is a collective letter.


Concerned CWU members, Hampshire.

Video: looking at the vaccines – “Safe and Effective, A Second Opinion

“Safe and Effective: A Second Opinion, shines a light on Covid-19 vaccine injuries and bereavements, but also takes an encompassing look at the systemic failings that appear to have enabled them. We look at leading analysis of pharmaceutical trials, the role of the MHRA in regulating these products, the role of the SAGE behavioural scientists in influencing policy and the role of the media and Big Tech companies in supressing free and open debate on the subject.

This film was created in collaboration with Mark Sharman; Former ITV and BSkyB Executive and News Uncut.

It’s a self-financed, one-hour TV programme, formatted for 2 commercial breaks.

The documentary was removed from YouTube on 26th October 2022 under the pretext of alleged “medical misinformation”. At that time it had accumulated over 990,000 views and 7,000 comments.

Trial safety protocol violation

 “Safety pharmacology, genotoxicity, and carcinogenicity studies were not conducted, in accordance with 2005 WHO vaccine guideline, as they are generally not considered necessary to support development and licensure of vaccines for infectious diseases.  In addition, the components of the vaccine construct are lipids and RNA and are not expected to have carcinogenic or genotoxic potential.”(Our emphasis – See Information Sources, 1. below).

And we draw your attention to the growing body of national and international evidence of vaccine-related adverse events and deaths as outlined in the following:

Yellow Card Reporting

In the UK we have the Yellow Card Reporting system. As of 24 November 2022 there was a total of 1,544,930 adverse reactions to the vaccines covering a multiplicity of symptoms from mild to severe. There were also 2,362 reported deaths. These adverse reactions and deaths relate to both monovalent and the latest bivalent vaccines. (See Information Sources, 2. below).

It has to be borne in mind that significant under-reporting is taking place for a number of reasons, including ignorance of Yellow Card reporting, difficulty in completing the form, and from our personal experience: GPs failing to log reports, GPs’ insistence that reactions are not vaccine-related and GPs discouraging reporting. There is also misreporting of vaccine deaths as due to other causes on death certificates by public health bodies.


Despite official claims that the vaccines are effective in preventing Covid-19, hospitalisations with Covid-19, and deaths from Covid-19 this is contradicted by real-life experience and official data in NHS Covid Surveillance Reports. For example, COVID-19 vaccine surveillance report: 3 March 2022 (week 9) shows that during weeks 5-8 of 2022, a total of 3,527 deaths from Covid-19 occurred amongst the vaccinated compared to 394 deaths from Covid-19 amongst the unvaccinated. Percentage-wise, just 10% of Covid-19 deaths were of the unvaccinated. But 90% of Covid-19 deaths were of the vaccinated. The data box showing this information has been excluded from recent reports without any explanation. (See Information Sources, 3. below)

Risk of hospitalisation

A review of safety data for the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines led by British Medical Journal editor Peter Doshi, also found that the vaccinated, are twice as likely to end up in hospital from a serious adverse reaction to the vaccine rather than to the virus itself. (See Information Sources, 4. below)

All cause-mortality

Through going to the High Court the HART Group found there has also been a significant rise in all cause-mortality amongst 15-19 year old males during the Pfizer vaccine roll-out for this age group; this equates to at least two additional teenage boys dying each week of the roll-out, possibly more. (See Information Sources, 5. below)

The UK currently has excess mortality of about 13-18%, depending on the selected period. In August, September, and October, up until Oct 21st, the anticipated deaths were about 77,000, but the recorded deaths exceeded that amount by 10,181. But public health bodies have simply declared there is no link to vaccination and are not investigating the vaccine status of the bereaved (See Information Sources, 6. below).

Neo-natal deaths

There has also been a spike in neonatal deaths in Scotland,where the neonatal death rate exceeded the upper control limit for the first time in September 2021, then again in March 2022. But – “Experts stressed that there was no “plausible” link between the unusually high levels of mortality among newborns in September last year and March this year to justify investigating maternal vaccination status (Our emphasis – see Information Sources, 7. below).

Increased cancer deaths

There are now also statistical signs of a possible vaccine-related rise in cancer deaths in the UK. The UK excess mortality data of May-August 2022 shows a total of 1,990 excess cancer deaths. Giving  110 excess cancer deaths per week.  The temporal coincidences of this excess cancer mortality with the vaccination campaign would be confirmed by comparing outcomes in vaccinated persons versus unvaccinated persons but the UK and the US health authorities are not permitting this(see Information Sources, 8. below).

Sport heart injuries

Former professional footballer Matt Le Tissier has also highlighted concerns about the growing numbers of sports people suffering heart problems since the vaccine rollout:

“One-club man Le Tissier highlighted that he “never once” saw a player suffering from heart complications in a 17-year long career spanning two decades, as he urged the authorities to conduct an investigation into the matter. Speaking to GB News, Le Tissier said: ‘It’s been very concerning for me, watching the sport that I love and that I played for 17 years… in all that time I never once saw any footballer leave the pitch because of heart issues. Now I’m sorry but if anybody can look at what is happening now in the world of sport and say it’s normal for all of these people to be having heart issues in football matches, cricket matches, basketball matches, any sport you wish. The amount of people that are suffering is going through the roof.’” (See Information Sources, 9. below)

Withholding trial data

Regulators (FDA, USA) argued, on behalf of Pfizer, that Pfizer data be withheld from the public for 75 YEARSin response to a Freedom of Information Act request by Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency. This was denied by the decision of the American justice, and released documents show:

“In clinical trials, 42,000 adverse effects and the death of more than 1,200 people. The side effects listed in internal Pfizer documents are completely different from those reported on the official website of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Thus, an internal Pfizer document recounts, over nine pages, the various adverse effects that have appeared during vaccine trials, the most serious of which are myocarditis, pericarditis, neurological disorders and deep vein thrombosis…These documents finally reveal that clinical trials of the Pfizer vaccine have resulted in more than 42,000 adverse effects and the death of more than 1,200 people. Remember that none of this information was communicated when this vaccine received its emergency authorization in the United States.” (Our emphasis – See Information Sources 10. below).

And to clarify – regulators had access to these documents all along, yet still gave their approval to the vaccine knowing the harms and deaths it was causing.

Bivalent injuries

Evidence is also emerging detailing the additional harms caused by the new bivalent vaccines, and the impact on people’s ability to work and live a normal life: “The rate of adverse reactions for the second booster dose was significantly higher among participants receiving the bivalent 84.6% (95% CI 70.3%-92.8%; 33/39) compared to the monovalent 51.4% (95% CI 35.9-66.6%; 19/37) vaccine (p=0.0028). Also, there was a trend towards an increased rate of inability to work and intake of PRN medication following bivalent vaccination.” (See Information Sources, 11. below)
