    • OK.  So you lent your car to a friend in 2019 and he racked up three parking tickets that he tells you he didn't know anything about(!).  You were the registered keeper (RK) at the time at your family address, but you got chucked out and could not change your RK address with DVLA because you were homeless.  You knew nothing about the parking tickets and enforcement action until you got a bailiffs' letter passed on to you.  You made an Out of Time (OOT) application in respect of one PCN but Birmingham CC objected to it and the traffic court rejected your application.  A solicitor helped you make OOTs in respect of the other two PCNs but you don't yet know the outcome of those two applications.   Is that the situation you are in?   dx100uk thinks you can resubmit the application saying your friend was the driver.  I don't think saying that will help as the driver is irrelevant.  It's the owner who is liable to pay the charge and that is the RK (unless the RK is a car hire firm).  I assume you are not a car hire firm so you are stuck with the liability, not the driver.   Whether you actually can resubmit an OOT once one has been rejected I do not know, but why not try.  What did the solicitor put on the applications they helped you with?  Did you not ask their advice about the rejected application while you were with them?  I think you would have to say something to the effect that you never received any paperwork in relation to the PCNs because you had been chucked out of your home and because you were homeless you did not update your address at DVLA.  That is the truth isn't it?  You don't want to lie on the application.   To me that's a good reason for you not doing anything about the PCNs, but I suspect that Birmingham CC will object again and that the traffic court will reject again.  And, as I said above, I don't even know if you can submit a second OOT application in respect of a PCN if the first has been rejected.   So it looks to me like you might be a bit stuck.   Unless dx100uk, or spaceman61, or another poster with expertise in local authority PCNs comes along I'm not sure what you do.   If you get no more helpful suggestions here you could try on National Consumer Service.  If you do go there, do not register with a hotmail address.  You will also need to provide them with a timeline of everything for all the documents you actually have, and you will need all the facts and dates etc at your fingertips.  And make sure they are accurate.   http://forums.National Consumer Service.com/index.php?showforum=30   And get your friend to contribute to paying off the PCNs.  Do you believe he really knew nothing about them?

    • Hi Charlie and welcome to CAG   As an Executor, you have a duty to insure the property and tell the currect insurer of the passing of the deceased.   Most insurers will refuse normal contents cover on a house left unoccupied beyond 60 days. So, unoccupied, the home will not be insured against break-in damage, theft, flood, accidental damage, etc.   You may be able to obtain FLEE insurance covering only Fire, Lightening, Explosion and Earthquake. It may cost more than usual contents cover  because the home is unoccupied, even though the level/amount of cover is less than for an occupied home.   As said here already, an Executor would be wise (or indeed have a duty) to remove valuables from the home if you have somewhere safer to store them pending Probate, distribution, sale, etc.   I hope if you can explain the insurance risks to YB and assure him that you are not taking items just for your own benefit, he may see sense.   Please keep us updated ............

Hi

 

 

So you mentioned that the bonuses were for meeting targets set by the company and the factory staff have been excluded (I assume for not meeting targets).

 

Now were any of the Managers graded m2 and above in charge of the factory staff to meet those targets?

*** off big time! me

 

Well, that's nice.

 

How about some facts instead of your opinion? Bonus is awarded for what? Contractual or discretionary? Without proper inforation we can't help, so if you could stop being angry long enough to tell us the whole story properly please..?

Hi Bones76

 

I know you may feel angry and upset about this but you need to take that anger out of the equation as you may not get the advice you need to assist you.

 

As Emmzzi suggested could you give us some information to assist you:

 

1. What is the Bonus awarded for?

2. Is this Bonus part of your Employment Contract or?

3. Is this Bonus Discretionary?

 

I can only understand how you feel but to get anywhere with this anger needs to be put aside and you need to concentrate on whether the employer has actually done wrong i.e. Employment Law and the Companies own Policies and Procedure.

ok guys, no longer annoyed or ****ed. hatred put in bottle.

 

1. it is contratal as i understand that bonus is paid for hitting tgts, these tgts are UN-achevable in my opinion as the company will not spend money to fix the tools we are expected to run.

2. this is the real bummer, our contracts where changed 3 years ago from an end of year profit bonus to a quarterly tgt met bonus

Hello again.

 

Thank you for the extra information and I'm pleased you had second thoughts about the FB page. When you have time, please have a read around this forum for facebook threads and you'll see the trouble it's caused other members here.

 

Are your colleagues as incensed as yourself and do you think they would be interested to be involved in trying to change things with you please?

You need to discuss the issue of targets and machinery not working properly with your line manager/supervisor. It is not in managements best interests for people to fail to meet targets as it looks bad for them too.

 

Talk calmly and clearly about it. Tell them you really want to achieve targets and how it frustrates you that you can't due to the machinery. If your manager says they can't do anything about it, ask them to raise it with their manager.

 

Try and be positive and suggest solutions without dwelling on the negative.

Ok, will take your advice and try to push with your idea of informing my team leader.

Trying to stay positive! thx!

Don't be put off if you don't get the response you want. The important thing is to make sure that you let them know you see there's a problem so they can address it. You need to give them the opportunity. If it doesn't get sorted then you can consider what your next step should be.

Unless it says you make 15 widgets and you did make 15 or above in your contract there is nothing you can do here other than collective bargaining

 

That means the workforce in unison not just one voice

 

If you decided to be the lone ranger or Spartacus on this issue with your managers you'll only be building your own gallows!

You have put yourself in the wrong. If there is a genuine grievance and the bonus is not contractually agreed for managers and not for staff, then go to your union and organise a proper strike ballot. Then go on strike. You then cannot be touched.

We don't have a union, when we asked "how many of the workforce need to be in a union" we where asked bk, "why do u need to know that?" can someone enlighten me? I was told many years ago that 40% of the work force had to be in one for any company to formally recognize it. Is that true? If not? what are the facts about joining one and the support we can expect?

respectfully,

Even if your employers don't recognise a union, you can still get advice and support, and it's a lot cheaper than paying a solicitor!

Thx caro, but i really need some facts. as above could some one tell me what percentage of a workforce is required to be a member of a union for a company to recognize it. also would this have to include office staff and managers? also again, would this only have to be the factory floor staff? are there different unions for different types of staff members? Any facts u can give me would be of great help to me and my fellow workers.

p.s learning to control my anger and frustration guys :)

Hello again.

 

Here's a link to ACAS with a bit more information on unions and what it takes to be recognised by an employer. They have a helpline that you might like to talk to.

 

I have known companies that had different unions for different types/levels of worker, I don't know if this has changed at all.

 

I think you're in the private sector? Are you able to give us an idea what the company does please? That way we should be able to tell you which union deal with it.

There is no percentage because their is no obligation for a company to recognise a union at all.

 

Most do though as it gives the impression that the care a small amount about their staff.

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

 

 

If my advice helps you, click the star icon at the bottom of my post and feel free to say thanks
