Terms & conditions

Welcome to UNIONREPS.org.uk. This service is provided to you, subject to the following terms, which may be updated by us from time to time without notice; provided that we will not alter Section 3 ("Privacy and data protection") without prior notice of this, and acceptance by you. You can review the most current version of the terms at any time by returning to this page.

Bulletin boards

Any message posted on the forums expresses only the views of the message author and does not necessarily reflect the views of the TUC or those of forum administrators and moderators. Neither these Forums, nor any person or entity associated with them, will be held responsible for the contents, accuracy, completeness or validity of any information posted in them.

Any user who believes that a posted topic, or comment on that topic, is objectionable is encouraged to contact the moderators immediately by clicking on the "report" link beside that comment. We will make every effort to review reported comments and take appropriate action within a reasonable period of time. Since this is a manual process, you are advised that we may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately.

By registering for and using the UNIONREPS.org.uk portal and bulletin boards, you signify that you agree to the following statements:

  • You will not use our forums to post any material, or links to any material, which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy or which would violate any law.
