This is not my view, but that of the union that I pay to represent my views!! So they tell me..... lol
Vote with your feet, like me and be £12 a month better off!
I was in the union 3 months, in the three months 2 of my colleagues needed union help....
One after a period of sickness he wanted advice and a rep to come to a meeting.
- The "help and advice" consisted of an emailed link to the force policy on the intranet (great help when off sick).
- The rep didn't bother turning up to the meeting no excuse given.
The other had a discipline / performance issue and meeting with HR and managers
- No rep available for the meetings despite HR and Sgts offering a multitude of dates, ended up with an expirenced non-union PCSO sitting in
They was then told, sorry no money available for union subs the month by 7 officers from my neighbourhood. Incidentally the latter officer is now one of the best performing. Can't say i have missed them.
