Testimonials From Members

Please find more stories here.

They fought for me to get the result I desired. Well done! Better than other unions by far!
Felt totally supported by Dianne during a recent stressful complaint at work Was guided through the mediation process and achieved a good outcome.
It was great to be able to bounce and have the issue reviewed by an independent person who while had my best interests was able to look at the situation without bias and bring balance back to the situation. Thank you.
