Does anyone know how long it will likely take for Unison solicitors to review my case of bullying at work? I have asked my rep twice but she is not responding. I just wanted some estimate of the time as I am in limbo, I am desperate to leave my job but want guarantee of a good reference. I can't currently go into details regarding what has happened as it's too painful to even think about let alone detail here, but basically I raised a grievance against my line manager (partially upheld) and appealed it but am now subjected to mobbing by 2 senior managers & HR. I just wondered if anyone has any idea of how long I may need to wait? Also if Unison solicitors do not believe there is a case for tribunal can I still ask them to sort a settlement?
I work for a County Council and am a paid up member of Unison. I recently had cause to speak to a parent about an issue and they identified themselves as working for Unison during ‘discussions’ about a serious complaint they had. They made several threats to us, using their standing, to have us investigated for apparently wasting money and for discrimination. This is without first establishing the facts that prove they are in fact wrong on every count. We are all facing severe funding cuts and as such are expecting a large number of redundancies and I take exception with the fact that this person has effectively abused their position and threatened people like me in order to bring about change. I’m not naïve enough to deny that this goes on every day in one form or another but I have taken exception to this especially as I pay for people like them to look after our interests and to not make even vaguely veiled threats. Do I have grounds for making a complaint to Unison and will it jeopardise anything with my employment? Any help or advice would be gratefully received.
I wonder if anyone has any idea about this. I have reason to complain big time to Unison for treating me unfairly as I have a disability. However, reading through the notes that the CAB advisors have been given on this new law, it states that it does not apply to trade unions. Have I got this right? And if so, who, if anyone, regulates Trade Unions?!
Hi. not sure if i am in the right place, but please bear with me, I contacted BOS early Jan 2012 and told them I was loosing £10k a year and needed assistance in short term etc they told me to default for Jan and call back in Feb and set up a reduced payment of £50 per month, to which I did, in April I received notice of arrears etc ( they returned my default fee )., after numerous phone calls to them I was informed that a complaint i had raised had been investigated , with no contact to me, and requests for call backs from BOS to me to ask for updates ignored, the bank found no fault had been on their part, however but he did apologise for the failings of the bank in not getting back to me as requested, the letter was sent out to me prior to me speaking with them with a cheque for £50 to cover any upset that may have been caused. It was also part of my complaint that I had been miss-informed as to the penalty's for doing reduced payments any advice would be much appreciated
