Luxembourg -OGBL meets government on pension reform -May 21, 2012

During a meeting with the ministry of social security a delegation of the OGBL has expressed the trade union criticism related to the planned reform of the pension system. The primacy is on reduction of costs that will have an impact on future payments and the usual adjustment to inflation and general wage increase. Notably workers in sectors with a heavy workload will suffer a deterioration of their pension rights. According to the union the purpose of any reform must be to improve the working conditions for elderly workers and to create adequate end-of-career job opportunities.
