Public Pension Changes Announced

The Government has announced changes to public sector pensions which will include staff paying higher contributions.

The new plans will see NHS staff and teachers worst affected as the Government plans to increase pension contributions up to 2.4% for people earning more than £21,000 per year.

“We entered into the scheme-specific talks on public sector pensions in good faith and we genuinely believe we are making progress, albeit slowly,” said Dave Prentis, general secretary of Unison.

“But these talks are being put in jeopardy by the crude and naive tactics of government ministers who do not seem to understand the word negotiate.”
