    Urgh. This was not worth waking up at 3:30am for.
    I am a brave man, I am a coward. I am the tiger, I am the flower.
    I am honest, and I'm a liar. I am vital, I am tired.
    I am a free man, I am caught. From where I am, I see the top.
    I am most importantly never concerned with what I am not.
    Forever, more than just surviving.
    THIS IS MY LIFE AND THIS LIFE IS MY DIAMOND

    Getting booed off the pitch, love it when a rival team's fans turn on their own team.

    If it has to go through formal channels such as a grievance process, then yes both will get a rep from the union (they can always call someone in from out of branch as a neutral if needs), but the likelyhood is the reps will always be looking to bring the two parties to a mutual solution based on understanding each sides viewpoint.

    If it is a case of where someone is wrong, the rep should be trying to explain where they are wrong, and what company policy/anti-discrimination legislation they have broken, and explain the situation to them. If they are too stubborn to admit defeat, then the rep just has to do the best they can for the person, whilst managing their expectations of sucess.


    Actually a mate of mine over at Unison was telling me of an old case he had once where a bloke lamped his colleague as he found he'd been banging his wife behind his back. Was a case of inform the management of the mitigating circs, so the guy who threw hands got off pretty lightly, and look for ways the attacked could continue to work for the company in another department, away from any further ambushes.

    I dont know of any cases in our branch in the last year thats been member v member going through a formal grievance. Mainly its member v company action (though the manager acting on behalf of the company is invarably a member, they tend to invoke HR/senior management to fight their corner, as its usually their guidance thats caused the issue!)

    Didn't take our fans long to let it all run to their heads. I suppose half of the crowd probably supported United 3 seasons ago so they're used to success -

    And he's denied a last-minute winner by a poor offside decision. They really need to do something about these ridiculous decisions from linesmen.

    Enjoyed the game though even if it was a very scrapy second half.

    Suarez may be one of the biggest ****s around but I find him hilarious, he is also a quite brilliant player of course.

    Guess the Everton fans will call it justice after the Rodwell incident last year.

    Should Suarez have seen red for the stamp on Distin? Nowhere near the ball and clearly went for the man. Great player but a total knob.

    We really should get a million goals in this game.
