Support from Colleagues
Interview excerpt: Having a neutral third party with you at a mediation meeting can be helpful, but Charlotte found little other support from her union representative.
There wasn't really any pros. I mean, the only pro was that I had somebody from the union with me at the meeting that I had to go through with them that first time round. Because who else would I have asked? I guess I could have asked a colleague, but that's complicated. So I guess I fulfilled the criteria [laugh] of having a, a neutral third party who's technically on my side there. But he didn't really have any advice.
