How we can help you

As one of the trade unions operating in local government we provide a wide range of services to members - we specialise in providing individual advice and representation in a myriad of specific employment problems.

Specifically, we act for members to contest:

  • changes to leaseback practices and policies
  • removal of variable working day systems or flexible working hour systems
  • unreasonable rejection of applications for leave
  • unreasonable imposition of forcing employees to take leave
  • access to flexible work or part-time work to properly discharge parental and family responsibilities
  • return to normal hours when those parental and family responsibilities change
  • bullying or harassment at work
  • unsafe or unpleasant working conditions
  • unfair treatment in performance reviews and behavioural management
  • the misuse of the Consultative Committee by management
  • unreasonable management of sick leave

but we like to think that we don't just react to the short-sightedness penny-pinching, meanness and vindictiveness common in the industry.  We have a proactive and progressive approach which assumes that it is possible to build satisfying and well-paid work (nearly) everywhere.
