Other ways to get help

Your first point of contact is your NEU workplace rep - they are best placed to discuss your next steps to dealing with your issue.

If you don't know who that is, contact your branch for assistance - you can get contact details for your branch by telling us which local authority you work in:

You can also contact the Employment AdviceLine - however, please be advised that this national service deals with a very high volume of emails and calls and your waiting time for a response may be long. 

If you can't find the answer to your question on this website, speaking to your rep or branch secretary will be the quickest way to answer your query.
