‘I was working at a hospital in Northampton when I was attacked by a patient resulting in severe injuries to me. The union I was a member of at the time was of very little help and I had to take up my case with a no win no fee solicitor which is ongoing. I have since joined the GMB which had started recruiting in the workplace.
Because of my injuries I can now longer work and the GMB have been a great help to me which I don’t believe I would have got if I had stayed with my first union. They have been able to give me help and advice and representation with my redundancy and pension. The branch also helped me and my family financially and I have been able to purchase a wheelchair.
I would like to tell people about how good the GMB is and how much they have helped me.’
