Angry Union Members

The calls and e-mails keep coming in from angry readers - who say they were bamboozled into transferring their equal pay claim to one of the unions.

Some people were panicked by false reports about hidden charges - others by nonsense about Stefan Cross going out of business.

One person was rightly outraged that the union claimed to be acting on her behalf – even though she had never been a member of that union.

But in any event, the good news is that none of this union propaganda is true – and that any problems can be put right very quickly.

You can switch your claim back to Action 4 Equality Scotland and Stefan Cross very easily – and given how the unions often treat their members - that’s exactly what people are now doing.

Here’s what one reader has to say:

“As a union member for over six years I have had a few dealings with them, but I never get anywhere. You pay your money and get the same answer every time - nothing they can do to help.”

“Their favourite answer is put it in writing. I pay them every week, so why should I put it in writing?”

So, if you want Action 4 Equality Scotland to take up your claim – ring us on 0845 300 3 800, or contact Mark Irvine at: markirvine@compuserve.com
