  1. Bankfodder - yep, I understand that...I think finally in this job I may not be the one shouting loudest ;) Ethel street - I would agree If there was accessible water available at all times...but with the distance, covid restrictions and targets to be met I don't think that at the moment they are being reasonable with the jobs that we do.
  2. Good evening, I work in a chilled (2 -3 degrees) food storage warehouse where I am employed to pack food, ready for distribution for mail order companies, and also to pick from the large warehouse fridges and freezers. All of the food is packaged. Today we were told that we were not allowed to have any drinks in the warehouse areas, - when I asked why the reply was that it has always been a rule and that they were now going to start enforcing it. Basically I'd like to know where we stand with this. Some background: We work 9.30 -5.30 with 1 half hour break at lunch, there is one s
  3. ok, so not impossible...i'm not out the woods yet then! i was reading that if it went to tribunal they would have to show that they have taken all other options and gone through their procedures...i don't believe they can prove that, so i'm still hoping! i did receive the invitation to a disciplinary and as in their guidelines it also stated in the letter that this could lead to a dismissal, it also advised that i could have somewhere with me, though i declined that option. unfortunately i didn't record the meeting....though i could see the notes the person was taking, it's a sm
  4. it's a private school, i'm support staff...not a teacher. i don't know if that's a good or bad thing. because it was the final step on their bradford chart my dept. manager wasn't in on the meeting. if it was him, i'm sure i'd be fine, he's a good guy, a bit of a knob sometimes but on the whole he's has an understanding of life. but this was out of his hands, he didn't like the situation himself and i'm pretty sure if they talk to him that he would confirm all that i said about my work within the dept. but i'm guessing from their point of view that the above doesn't mean much i
  5. annoyingly my union member ship lapsed a while ago, and i didn't set it back up again....oh hindsight is a wonderful thing!!! i'm so pro union too, and see it like an insurance policy. stupid, and lesson learned. i do however have a bit of back up as my sister in law is pretty high up in hr and would represent me if needed (in a different company) ....she's away at the moment so couldn't contact her about this...and it's also nice to get other people's opinions. i would've got the doctor to sign me off for less time as it went into the summer holidays (i only work term time, but t
  6. hi there, just looking for a bit advice, and hopefully some reassurance! my employer uses the bradford factor score for absences. i have three children in primary school and i am the main carer of the children as i'm the part time worker (i understand this doesn't mean too much to an employer)....as a result of their sickness in the last 12 months my bradford factor score meant that i got a verbal warning. a couple of months after this was issued i sprained my ankle resulting in three weeks absent from work (i work term time only and the remainder of my bad ankle took place during
  7. hi there, looking for a bit of advice, or to know if something could be possible.... my partner and i (unmarried, 4 kids, been together 20 years) currently have a joint mortgage which has recently changed from being fixed to being on a tracker. we can happily afford the payments at the moment but we're worried about rates going up in the next few years and would like to be on a fixed rate again. the flat we own we are currently renting out, the mortgage company know this but they haven't changed it to a buy to let mortgage as yet. we are renting the house that we curren
