TUC pledges support for Local Government Pension fight

Congress has just passed Composite 6 on pensions having heard from a stream of speakers from various unions reporting on the fight to defend pension rights across their industries and sectors.

UNISON Vice President Carole Maleham spoke to pledge that our fight to defend the Local Government Pension Scheme continues – and pointing out that there would be further industrial action if we did not get an acceptable deal.

Some local government activists here on the UNISON delegation have been discussing the need for a Special Local Government Service Group Conference to agree on any recommendation to put to members in a ballot.
