    I have put a grievence towards the manager I am off work until it's resolved. All charges dismissed, I've put an appeal in, it's been three months from the initial grievence and I don't feel they're doing anything, just delaying the appeal reply more like sweeping it under the carpet, hoping give up and return to work.

    Advice and next action?

    What has your union rep said?

    What about CAB I'm sure they've dealt with this kind of stuff before?

    Sounds like the grievance was dismissed and the situation is therefore considered resolved by your employer.
    I'd go back to work.

    Contact your employer's HR department and ask?

    No chance of getting a helpful answer unless the details are revealed, but please don't do that. Confidential advice like CAB is required.

    ACAS would be another point of call

    Manager must have something on someone to get away with it if it's proven on your side.

    Unfortunately, having watched a friend bring a grievance at her company, I long ago realised that the purpose of the HR department is to protect the company, not the staff.

    I agree with you here. Witnessed things myself where the HR department sides with the company and not the individual.

    That's just confirmation bias. Just because you don't see HR "siding" with employees doesn't mean they don't.

    GIVE ME YER BLOODY SUBS is the only thing they ever say in my experience.

    So to confirm, you put in a grievance, they denied it, you appealed and that's where we are now? I assume you're being paid and you're not receiving letters saying you should be in work? I would just wait out the process, surely?

    I've found a union is only as good or as strong as it's members ;)

    As above - what communication have you had? Written confirmation of all the above?

    If the initial grievance and the subsequent appeal has been dismissed - What are you still off work for?? Stress?
