Hi hi everybody I have just joined hope you are all well I am an Unpaid Carer We have been 30 years late diagnosed with a very rear Genetic illness ALFA-MANNOSIDOSIS with specific conditions that have affected our son the condition also has specific arthritis which effects us I have  been fighting since 2002 after an injury I reported to ASLEF and [removed by moderator] Solicitors [removed by moderator] worked on my case for 3 years ASLEF were involved with My Bullying Discrimination Hate Crime and Physically Attacked in work October 2004 November 2004 I was sacked the company stated that I had a disorder of my spine but at the time And before joining the company in 2000 I would run to work Six miles before and after My shift of work I Reported to my GP Six times in 30 years of Train Driving for my back and never informed that I have a disorder of my spine on the contrary My GP Stated after a car crashing into the rear of my car at traffic lights and EX-Rays I was informed that My spine was normal for a person of My age I played football and exercising. I injured my spine after I and 20 other Train Drivers Reporting to ASLEF and [removed by moderator] Solicitors 2002 and the company that the Class 67 Locomotives we were working were suffering from sudden violent side to side whiplashing over points sets and on plain long welded railway siting on unstable drivers seats that would give no support to your body and shake side to side, the company then stated to remove the suspension dampers from the bogeys and placed in the cabs still forced to work at 100 MPH with broken SUSPENSION DAMPERS IN OUR CABS. EVER SINCE 2002 after My reporting I suffered from Bullying Discrimination Hate Crime Physical Attack in work I suffered two mental health breakdowns in 2004 and 2005 at My Sacking appeal with the now ASLEF General Secretary [removed by moderator] actually sat at my side as I Suffered the second mental breakdown,
I was promised By the General Secretary [removed by moderator] in a letter That if I am sacked I would have the full force of ASLEF at my side, [removed by moderator] was given the task of stopping the bullying discrimination physical attack against me by [removed by moderator] ASLEF General Secretary Unfortunately [removed by moderator] promises were vile lies and Both he and [removed by moderator], [removed by moderator] Solicitors, and ASLEF totally abandoned me they themselves actually discriminated against me by treating a Virgin Train Driver [removed by moderator] who won the Industrial Tribunal [removed by moderator] were acting for him, £ 40 Thousand Pounds. the Disability Commission advice to me that they would not help me as I was a member of [removed by moderator] ASLEF EC Member and [removed by moderator] Solicitor [removed by moderator] refused to support me for an industrial Tribunal and said I have no case  I was out of time.
I complained to [removed by moderator] after ASLEF [removed by moderator] Solicitors Abandoned me but the reply from ASLEF Head Office [removed by moderator] Policy and Communications Office, ( DID MY NURSE WRITE MY LETTERS FOR ME TO [removed by moderator] ).

 The company solicitors claimed that I had been overpaid £ 9 Thousand Pounds and they would counter sue me if I continued with my Industrial Tribunal the No Win No Fee Solicitors [removed by moderator] stated that the company would make us sell our home this just weeks after My second mental health breakdown I didn't know which way to turn and gave in losing my Tribunal, We lost our home anyway.
I have suffered further Breakdowns when our home was lost, marriage broke down And was made homeless.
 The reson [removed by moderator] Solicitors abandoned the injury case was that the Knee Specialist they sent me to [removed by moderator] gave My medical records to My employer who reviewed My medical records and used them to sack me.
 The company Senior H/R Manager speaking on behalf of the company CEO [removed by moderator] Has Blatantly lied to My Members of Parliament [removed by moderator] and [removed by moderator] stating that he can assure them that I was not a victim of bullying discrimination Hate Crime, Both have refused to investigate for me i received a reply from [removed by moderator] a sarcastic letter saying that as I am now 18 I can vote in an election.

well I would like to thank anyone who reed My Long first letter to you.

Yours  Sincerely 

Colin

    Hello and welcome to the community @Col356 :)

    This seems like a very complex situation. I'm unsure about what your next steps could be in terms of investigating any case of bullying and discrimination further, so I've moved your post into the Employment and Careers category. 

    Just to let you know, I've also removed references to individuals' names and the name of your solicitors. If you could refer to them more generally from now on, that'd be great! 

    I'm sorry to hear that you've been struggling with your mental health, and that you lost your home and marriage as a result of what happened. Are you currently seeking any support for your mental health? Do you now have a space place to stay?

    Hi @Col356 and thanks for the additional information.

    I'm sorry to hear about all the things you've had to go through, have you reported these incidents to any independent crime or employment bodies? 

    I'm not sure what else to suggest as your situation is very complex, but this community is always here for you to provide as much support as we can.

    Hi @Col356

    Thanks for replying, hope you're well today :) 

    I see. I'm sorry to hear that. I think what has happened to you certainly should be investigated.
