Local Government Pension Scheme under attack

PENSIONS: Defend local government pensions
The government is currently consulting on plans to allow universities and colleges in England to opt out of offering the local government pension scheme (LGPS) to new non-teaching staff. The proposal would:

  • create a two-tier workforce with new starters offered inferior pensions;
  • disproportionately affect women and the lower paid;
  • threaten the future sustainability of the whole scheme.

This attack on pension rights is the thin end of the wedge – let’s take action.
