As I said most organisations are too sneaky to say it's because you've had kids. Instead it's performance management and opportunities not made available. The union can't help there unfortunately.

The ones that are really nasty are the ones that wait until the end of your mat leave when you really need an income back, to drop the bomb on you regarding redundancy or a back track on flexible working decisions. If they said it at the beginning you'd have a year to sort it out.

Gentoo, I think we are in the same profession. I am lucky enough to work for an organisation that is pretty forward thinking in these matters (not perfect, but certainly a long way ahead of what you experienced). I'm reasonably senior in the company and have been on the committee for one of the professional groups you mentioned.
Send me a PM if you want some support.

So I guess I'm lucky that they can't refuse me part time hours and if I'm made redundant my package is extremely over-generous, but it's a fact it has stalled my career as I can't move up.
