United Kingdom - Unions argue the case for public sector pensions - August 4, 2010

In the face of widespread attacks on public sector pensions, unions are putting together their evidence for the government-appointed Hutton committee that has been charged with reviewing the system. The PCS civil service union has submitted a detailed report setting out how recent changes to the civil service pension scheme have been acknowledged by the National Audit Office as putting it on a sustainable footing. The Unite union argues that the government has already pre-judged the review by changing the way that public sector pensions are protected against inflation.
