Problems at work
Our experienced reps can give you independent advice when it comes to health and safety issues surrounding vehicles, equipment and working practices, including charging for equipment. We can help members with pay discrepancies and holiday issues as well as threats of redundancy and bullying or harassment at work. Job security and better workplaces are our priority for members.
As a member, we can represent you in grievances and disciplines, presenting your case and advising you throughout. If you feel warning and discipline procedures are not being followed properly then we can protect your rights to fair and proper hearings.
