Sunderland NASUWT - Testimonials

Testimonials

I cannot recommend the NASUWT highly enough for their support and reassurance at what have been the most difficult times of my life.  Just hearing the calm, reassuring voice and wise words made such a difference to me, when I was at rock bottom. Thanks to my NASUWT caseworker, I am now back at work and feel I can move on with life in a positive manner.

I am very happy to speak of the excellent support and guidance supplied by the NASUWT.

I decided to take voluntary redundancy at the school where I worked, earlier this year, on the basis of the information offered by Northumberland County Council and Governors.

Many changes were made during the process, resulting in huge anxiety and uncertainty about the very important and difficult decision I had made. Fortunately, the constant and reassuring involvement and intervention of NASUWT meant I could count on accurate and expert advice at such a difficult time.

Ultimately, the NASUWT helped me secure the original promises and financial package offered. I will be eternally grateful for the hard work and commitment (often after working hours) shown by the NASUWT in helping me to reach a successful outcome.

With thanks.

My caseworkers were always punctual, organised and extremely hard working. I could call C at any time and she was always available to talk to me and help with any concerns. C was exemplary in devastating and depressing times when I would most probably have left work for good.

During times when I really did not want to keep going in this world I found C to be a life support. I am now back at work and C has now become a valuable friend.

 Over the last few months I have found the support from my local NASUWT caseworkers, absolutely invaluable. I have been supported emotionally and practically with great advice, representation and compassion, resulting in the best outcome for me and my family.

#

My caseworkers knew all the rules and legislation regarding my role and employment and spoke to my workplace on my behalf, many times, to create a smooth transition back to work. They negotiated a suitable phased return after six months of sick leave. The structured return to work was extremely generous and it enabled me to get paid while spending time getting used to my return without any pressure or stress.

#

I would have been completely lost without the NASUWT. Thank you both from the bottom of my heart. I cannot praise you both enough for your professionalism and pure dedication to helping me.

#

The help and support I received from my NASUWT negotiating team was first class. It was clear that they cared deeply about me and were determined to secure the best possible outcome for me.

#

During a very difficult and sad time the NASUWT were incredible supportive. My caseworkers met me on several occasions at a convenient location to myself. I found my caseworkers to be very well informed, extremely professional and knowledgeable and even helped me to fill in forms to claim benefits.

#

I can’t thank my NASUWT caseworker enough for the work he has done for me. He worked quickly and effectively to get the best outcome and kept me up to date with his progress every step of the way. I couldn’t have asked for more support. Thank you.

#

I was in need of professional guidance and the NASUWT provided me with all the support I needed. Their help saved me many anxious moments. I could have not asked for more. My membership has proved invaluable.

#

It is important that every teacher has good quality support from their union. Seeing that support in action, convinced me to join the NASUWT.

#

I cannot thank my NASUWT rep enough for the help, guidance and kindness given. He was never more than a phone call away and always there to help.

#

The NASUWT has a wealth of expertise to help their members with work related problems, financial struggles and legal issues. I am grateful to have received support from the NASUWT in all of these areas.

#

Since getting in touch with the NASUWT, my life has changed from being on the edge of giving up a 16 year teaching career, to feeling excited about the next chapter in my teaching career.

#

The NASUWT have supported me when I was struggling financially. They were able to support me with a cheque for several hundred pounds to see me through a very difficult time.

#

I waited until I was at my lowest point before I sought help from my union. I was really worried about getting in touch with the NASUWT but from the moment I did I was fully supported without judgement and wish I had rang and asked for help earlier.
