Hello, Sorry to do this through a new username but I'm pretty worried about letting my identity slip. I've had a lot of trouble at work lately and have had to seek advice from my Union. Their advice, their only advice, is to go through my workplace's formal grievance procedure. The trouble is that this would be against my line manager and they are not the nicest of people. I have already been made ill by them and fear that undertaking a formal complaint would only make things harder/impossible for me. The Union rep (regional, not local) said that I had two choices 1) complain and put a stop to it or 2) put up with it. He was less that forthcoming and I found him very difficult to speak to because he was so blunt about it. I thought that part of the Union role was to support their members but perhaps I got that wrong. Would YOU complain about your boss?
