Why are the unions striking over proposed changes to our pensions?


UNISON and UCU would like to invite all staff and students to the following open meetings to explain:

“What are the proposed changes to our pension schemes – why are the unions striking?”

NORTH
Wednesday 16 November 2011
13:00-14:00
Room: TG-30, ‘Henry Thomas Room’

CITY
Thursday 17 November 2011
13:00-14:00
Room: JSM-34 (Jewry Street Lecture Theatre)

The government has proposed significant changes to public sector pension schemes that London Met staff are members of (LGPS/ LPFA, USS and TPS). The government want us to pay more, work longer and get less.

Public sector unions (including UNISON and UCU) are in dispute with the government over these detrimental (and in our view unnecessary) changes and, after balloting all relevant members, announced the first day of strike action on 30th November.

Come to these open meetings (all welcome) for up to date info and find out how this will affect YOU…

  1. some finacial experts are already predicting that several western governments will defect on state employees pensions in the future as the burden increases with people living longer. Few people in the private sector enjoy such "proctected pensions" The union leaders are out of touch with reality. The strike can only make things worse and bring forward that defection.
