Who do we represent

Grateful for your help


It has now just been over a year that you represented me at Freightliner for my slip up.

I am still working for Freightliner and am very grateful for your help and support at that time.

I am aware that we pay subs for  a union backing, but it does not detract from the time and effort you put in for me and saved my job.

As then it true now, I am very grateful to you and thank you very much once again.

Best wishes.
