annoyed with insurance company

I've no idea whether to post this in work & jobs or insurance ! Mods please move if its not appropriate here.

Basically I work for a HSE funded organisation. My salary comes from the HSE to said organisation. We are known as allied to the public sector insofar as salary scales, holidays, union agreements, public ire etc

Every month I pay into the HSE administered pension pot.
Now just to be clear, I am NOT a member of any union, public sector or otherwise. My car insurance is due for renewal & I need a particular type of indemnity. I asked around in work & lots of my colleagues are with the same financial institution & get this indemnity.

So I rang them. 'Can you give me insurance even though I am not in a union.' The answer was 'yes as long as you are in public sector'. Well I'm allied to the public sector and I pay into a public sector pension fund....'hmmmm nope sorry, can't cover you'....'Right, so if I said I was a member of 'insert union name here' would you cover me'...'Yes..... No Problem. '

I spoke to my HR manager & she has told me that there should not be an issue at all.

I'm sorry I'm not sure what advice I'm looking for really, it just really annoyed me !!!!

I'm assuming it's cornmarket your trying to get insurance with. They are the only company u know that has any stipulations in relation to public sector workers. Is it class 2 or 3 use your looking for indemnity for?

Hey thanks for your replies folks, I actually got it sorted. In fairness they said they would look into it, and they did. I can be covered.
