"Your mediation team have got our business out of two difficult small claims cases in the past and are currently helping us with another one. When I had a problem recently with a customer, I told them to please call the MTA. I also called MTA and spoke with Alan who has been great. He has been very helpful and knows everything about our current situation."

"Thank you so much to your team for helping us with a difficult worker situation. The support and care was outstanding. I was away from the business when a situation happened, and my daughter was able to call and speak with the HR team, and they made sure everything we did was above board and done through the correct process. The problem has gone, and we can’t thank you enough."

"The MTA is a great partner for any automotive workshop, from H&S pointers and quality HR assistance for those hard times, right through to subsidised training courses and fun social events. The blue badge is the recognised symbol of assurance but there is a lot more going on behind it too."

"MTA’s accessibility of information and customisable templates has been a game-changer. Knowing I have access to HR advice is invaluable, not to mention the savings received through member benefits. I highly recommend being an MTA member for the support and peace of mind. They truly provide a sustainable business advantage."
