Protect our pensions
Public sector pensions are again making headlines as politicians plan to make us work until we drop.The proposals mean that we will pay more, work longer and get less while bankers continue to rake in millions in bonuses.And the money that gets taken from you won’t go towards improving your pension schemes, but is being used to pay off the deficit caused by bailing out the banks.UNISON is leading the campaign to protect our pensions because we don’t believe public service workers should be forced to pay what is in reality an extra tax. We think everyone deserves a decent pension.
