Legal cover with the PPU is not at the discretion of an NEC. With the PPU you have two choices of cover when you sign up, this is in addition to £2,500 emergency cover for legal assistance should you be involved in an incident or accident.
We are moderate, but we will reasonably and robustly defend your terms and conditions.
We are able to assist a number of members transfer to the Long Term Sick list, apply for Loss of Licence compensation, and transfer to the Income Protection Scheme.
