United Kingdom -Unilever pension dispute ends in compromise -April 18, 2012

Members of Unite the Union and USDAW have accepted a revised pension deal at Unilever. GMB is still balloting its members. The revised pension deal does still end the previous pension scheme but eliminate some of the most objected parts of the new scheme, such as a unilateral ability to implement annual indexing below UK’s Retail Price Index (RPI) and the elimination of any consultations with the social partners. The compromise was reached through mediation by the UK’s Advisory, Conciliation, and Mediation Services (ACAS)
