In terms of what you can do to take this further, your only claim would be for professional negligence against the union, where you would be arguing that the duty of care they showed you was below the standard expected of a reasonable union in the same position as theirs. In simple terms – what they did was not what any competent union would have done had they been in the same position.
Such a claim does indeed have a 6-year limitation period, which starts from the time the alleged negligent act occurred. This was a couple of years ago so you are still well within time.
To make a claim you need to issue it in the County Court and the level of claim would be the losses you have directly incurred as a result of their negligence. This could be loss of earnings from that period to date and potentially even going forward.
As this can be a complex case it is recommended that you take up the services of a professional lawyer to help you. Whilst no win no fee is a potential option, it would depend on how strong a case the firm believes you have and it will vary so you would not know until you have approached them and they have conducted a case analysis.
