I am having doubts about my union, ATL. I am a teacher with a mental health disability and I am made redundant. I am challenging it. My first rep seemed to think I had a good case on the grounds of discrimination (I wont go into details) of how the selection was made. Unfortunately my 1st rep has gone on holiday for 3 weeks and I now have a new rep who is very downbeat about it all. I am becoming increasingly depressed. I have been off sick since the first meeting with the governors. Does anyone else have experience of the ATL in similar cases? Do they have the stomach to fight my case or should I look elsewhere for help?
