Pension Changes Unfair - Unite

Recommended Posts

The missus just received this email from UNITE, I think I'll email Siobhan asking for her proposed solution to the countries finances.

You may now have heard about the government’s unfair plans to change the State Pension Age. 5 million men and women in their late 50s are affected, and will have to wait longer for their state pension. Half a million women will have to wait over a year for their pension, and 33,000 will have to wait a full two years. Most of our members are affected, and we all need to take action to unite for pensions for women, for men and for all our futures.

Please find attached a postcard (click here to download) you can send to your MP and a briefing on the issues affecting our members. Please could you encourage as many members as possible to write to their MP over the Summer months. The Bill will be debated again in parliament in the Autumn. The feedback we’ve had from MPs is that every single email, letter and phone call makes a difference. if you are not sure who your MP is then visit www.theyworkforyou.com

Not only are their plans unfair, they also break a promise the Tories and Lib Dems made not to do this in the Coalition Agreement. The Labour opposition is going to argue that the Pensions Bill should be abandoned, because the proposals on the state pension age are so unfair.

Please do let us know if you receive a reply from your MP. You can email me at siobhan.endean@unitetheunion.org Many thanks for supporting this urgent campaign.

Yours in Unity

Siobhan Endean, Unite National Officer for Equalities
