  1. Thanks sangie5952 particularly for such a quick response. I won't be pursuing this one.
  2. Hello again I posted this earlier today under my previous posts but think I should have posted my comments here as a new topic. Apologies for any confusion or duplication. I have started compiling my list of disclosures for the respondent in my ET claim and am also thinking about what I need from my employer (respondent). I would be grateful for some advice on the procedure for requesting information from a respondent relating to a third party. The background is that while my grievance was being investigated my colleague, Mrs X, also submitted a grievanc
  3. Hello again I have started compiling my list of disclosures for the respondent in my ET claim and am also thinking about what I need from my employer (respondent). I would be grateful for some advice on the procedure for requesting information from a respondent relating to a third party. The background is that while my grievance was being investigated my colleague, Mrs X, also submitted a grievance against the respondent. The submission was made three months after mine but withdrawn after a month when she could see that my grievance was not making any progress. She t
  4. Thanks and I will certainly consider joining UNITE in my next job.
  5. Thanks sangie5952. As I currently have nothing to lose I will indeed "go with the flow" but if there is any hint of a sunami I will head my pedalo back to shore as quickly as I can. Fingers x'd. Thanks again.
  6. Hi Sangie5952. Yes I wish I had belonged to a union. In the job immediately before my last one I was a contractor placed into a job via a recruitment agency so union membership didn't cross my radar. Immediately before that job I worked for 22 years in an OGD where, for reasons best not mentioned, I was unable to join a union. So I suppose joining a union was not in my mind. That said in the early 1980s I did belong to a union when I worked for another OGD and I even protested on the picket line. Am showing my age now methinks. My last employer is under the umbrell
  7. Thanks again sangie5952. Remember you warned me to sit down so I didn't have far to fall. I will 'sleep on it' maybe for a few weeks, so a long snooze. The grievance feels toxic making it difficult to be objective. Also I think the respondents are unlikely to make an offer to settle as they are part of a large public body and I believe their default position is not to admit liability. I wouldn't dream of calling you names. It is clear you are giving generously of your time and experience. I only wish I had access to this kind of advice sooner. Incidentally when I ref
  8. Thanks to all for your help and swift response. As you can see from my response to sangie5952 I am going to withdraw. (In response to Honeybee I have proof of everything relating to the grievance about performance and the appeal but only limited evidence to support the other issues).
  9. Thanks sangie5952 Appreciate the honesty. I would be concerned that the tribunal might view my claim as frivolous or malicious and order me to pay costs. Given that the costs may include air fares for witnesses etc I am loathe to risk it. Time for me to let go of the anger and move on methinks... Life goes on.
  10. Sangie5952 Thanks once again for responding so quickly. As requested here is some, but not all, of the issues: My employer committed a series of breaches between 2015 - 2018 including: In 2015 Failed to issue my contract within 2 months 2015 - recruitment manager reneged on a verbal agreement to review my pay retrospectively. I started at the lowest pay band despite having 9 years previous relevant experience 5 of which I worked as a contractor for the same organisation 2016-2017 - Denied me overtime as a part-timer on the basis that
  11. Oh dear I will probably withdraw my claim given it is unlikely to succeed. Thank you for the reality check.
  12. Today I received the respondent's (employer's) ET3 and once again would appreciate some advice. My employer states that because I worked three months notice I have waived/affirmed any alleged breach of contract. In my ET1 form I explained my reasons for working notice as follows: a) To limit the impact of my leaving on team members - I have worked with the same two colleagues for over 7 years during which we faced many obstacles together including the ongoing challenge of keeping an increasing backlog at manageable levels despite being significantly under resourced.
  13. Sangie5952 Thanks that has clarified what the ET1 form represents. We haven't made disclosures yet so I can include the relevant evidence then. Appreciate your help many thanks.
  14. Sangie5952 Thanks for such a prompt and informative response. I have checked my 'Statement of Particulars of Employment' and there is no reference to bonus/thank you awards so it appears that an unauthorised deduction doesn't apply. If I am not amending my ET1 can you see any reason why I cannot include this in my witness statement? My concern would be that I had not given the respondent's solicitor sufficient notice of this new fact.
