It’s cheaper to make people redundant…
And that’s why our employers have embedded that into the recent pension change proposals.
We’ll begin to reveal more of the devil in the detail of the small print of the employers’ proposals here on this blog over the coming weeks.
- Only employers so far have been consulted, not employees. Your union thinks you should be consulted over your future.
- In a ballot of members in May this year, 96% of voting UCU members voted to reject the employers’ proposed changes, with a similar number backing UCU’s alternative proposals to share costs between employers and staff.
- £627,000 of taxpayers’ money was used to support the employers in preparing and pushing their proposals.
- Some could get up to £127,000 less in pre-tax pension income under the new proposals
