    Need help with this. Scared to put too much detail on. Off work sick atm. Work related stress. Lots of unpleasant things happening, feel am being pushed out as am expensive. Role changing again for September (has changed every year for past 5 years)... no discussion just told what’s happening. Any advice? I’ve no union. My husband and I split earlier this year and in stopping joint acct direct debits it got cancelled... arrrgh.

    If you've a good track record of paying your union subs over the years I'd try to explain to them it was all an error. They might just take pity on you. Try before you do anything else.

    Obviously you can't tell us the full details, but if it comes to a disciplinary meeting (I am not saying that it should) then you are entitled to take a colleague instead of a union rep. I guess it would be possible for a school union rep to come in that capacity if they were willing. I hope it doesn't come to that, and that CAB can help you get through this.

    Maybe try for a new school. There are lots of vacancies for experienced staff.

    Don't work for unpleasant people.

    Think you’re right. Been looking in hope.

    Thank you... I don’t think we are in that territory, just informal stuff at the moment but I have a case for a grievance I think just not sure how to proceed or whether to leave it and run!

    Household insurance may be able to give some employment law support, worth checking your policy.

    Run. I am running and it feels good. Some schools are unhealthy places these days. But as I have found, some are normal...best of luck.
