Firefighters Tackle Pension Changes

The Fire Birgade Union (FBU) has claimed that a quarter of it’s members may leave their pension scheme if they are forced to make higher contributions.

A survey of 8,000 of it’s members found that 27% are considering leaving if pension contribution rose to 14% from 11%.

“A sharp hike in already high contributions and the other changes could be the tipping point which will see an exodus from the main pension scheme,” said the FBU’s general secretary Matt Wrack.
