In a situation like this I would recommend workplace mediation rather than launch into a personal grievance. It is apparent there are considerable communication issues, and that you are being treated as a second class employee but to take the next step and claim a personal grievance would likely be very destructive in a small workplace. You have been there for some time I see, and clearly have had times when you were ignored. But they have continued to employ you over that time, so underneath the apparent rudeness they must still need you. So some mediation may improve the atmosphere without getting into the more confontational personal grievance. Would that be a better approach?
