Unfortunately, problems at work arise from time to time in all sorts of areas, like:
Being threatened with disciplinary action
Being put at risk of redundancy
Having your working hours changed or being told you must work excessive hours
Being treated unfairly by your boss or other colleagues
Feeling that you’re being discriminated against
Working in an unsafe or unhealthy environment
Your achievements and efforts not being recognised through pay rises or promotion opportunities
Being bullied or harassed
Accord members benefit from confidential, professional advice on any work-related issue. We’ll be there when you need someone on your side.
Accord has a dedicated and experienced team of advisers. You can find the contact details for your local officer here.
We negotiate collective agreements that determine your pay, terms and conditions and how you’re treated at work. Our collective voice is strong and our agreements some of the best in the industry.
In addition, Accord provides a FREE legal advice line for members (and their immediate families) as well as support with employment tribunal applications, personal injury claims and more. Find out more about the legal services available to members.
Reps are the beating heart of the Accord, with over five hundred trained workplace representatives across the country who are on hand to help when things aren't going so well. No other union in either LBG or TSB can match this network of support.
Our reps can help you resolve issues locally, and efficiently by working with you and your manager to put things right. Got a policy question? No worries, our reps have a wealth of experience and often know where to find the answer, or they'll find out for you. They look after your health and safety too.
Some of our reps take on greater responsibilities - find out about our reps and their responsibilities.
