    • Hello, Im here in regards to a vodafone account from 2015. No payments made on the said vodafone from August 2015 Default Date 12th Dec 2015 . was left sat there untill it dropped off my credit file & thought no more of it . it did eventually drop off my credit file . all done & dusted & had no need to worry about my credit file. as if Vodafone would have written i would have sent them the SB letter.   so fast foward to yesterday 13/06/24 logged in to see my credit file & Bam vodafone appears same amount , same dates only thing that is different is instead of saying default its now on there as Delinquent !!! now my understanding was once a default drops from a credit file it cant be put back on or am i wrong ? so moving forward how would i deal with this ?   any help and advice would be great thank .   BTW i know the default date as back in 2019 i printed my credit report off , on that said report that i fished out today it gives me the default date , status history & Balance history.

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

I am absolutely mortifed to have found out that Trade Unions are not regulated.

 

I have spent several months pursing my complaint (complete farce) with a particular trade union to now be informed that it has reached stage 3 and I can take it no further.

 

What can I do? Any suggestions please.

Here you go :)

 

 

Trade unions

 

Your statutory rights as a trade union member are being infringed, or you believe your trade union has breached its own rule book. Tony Wright MP tells you what to do

 

 

http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2001/jul/19/mpsurgery.tradeunions

 

Who can you complain to?

 

Contact the certification officer:

Brandon House, 180 Borough High St, London SE1 1LW (Tel: 020 7210 3734)

 

Before complaining to the certification officer you should have gone through the internal complaints procedure of your trade union.

 

For complaints against statutory breaches, you should complain within 12 months of the offence. Breaches against the rule book should be reported within six months of the date when you became aware that this was occurring.

 

These deadlines may be extended to take into consideration the time the internal complaints procedure took to complete.

Thank you Citizen B - as I thought "The certification officer cannot deal with complaints about whether a trade union has failed to assist or represent their members. This constitutes a breach of contract and you should seek legal advice." - another legal battle! If only I had the subscription fees I've paid all these years to Unison to fund it!!

Does this help ?

 

Google is your best friend here.

 

As I see it, you have to formally complain to the head of the union (or one of the minions) and if this gets rejected, you can complain to the certifications office.

I sent my complaint initially to Dave Prentis/General Secretary. This was then passed on to members liaison. I do plan to send my complaint back to Dave Prentis but don't have any faith that I will get anywhere. Also, local MP has been pretty rubbish - happens to be Labour, who receive funding from Unison - no conflict of interest there then!!!!

Unions will shout about protecting their members, they rarely protect individuals and are more concerned with the collective.

 

When Unions get involved they need to be watched, especially the agreements they reach with the company.

Im looking for any uk law or cases that would support you. Unfortunately I have not yet found any. IN the US there is a "Failure to represent" but even that has high levels of difficulty being successful.

 

 

As for contract law, check your t+Cs, esp the small print to see if there are any exemptions or get out clauses from having to represent you. I know these do exist. Without knowing the nature of your complaint it would be hard to advise further

Also check your union rule book and make sure you have not broken any rules that would jepodise representation.

if the union believes your case had little chance of success they are not obliged to support you - otherwise they would be wasting others members money. This seems fair to me!

Never assume anyone on the internet is who they say they are. Only rely on advice from insured professionals you have paid for!
