Victory for Pension Protection

Last year the Government announced it was considering providing a statutory override for companies with workers in pension schemes, covered by protected persons regulations. This particularly impacted on UNSION  members who worked in the Electricity industry prior to its privatisation.

It carried out a full consultation on the matter to which UNISON responded. The full UNISON response is contained above. UNISON made clear in its response that it did not support the creation of  a statutory override and that the protections given at the time should continue to be honoured.

Yesterday the Government gave its long awaited response to the consultation which has supported the UNISON position on this matter. The full link to the Governments response is below.
