Defend Private Sector Pensions

The ballot of UNITE members at Fujitsu is an important development in the fight to defend pensions in the private sector. (The dispute is also over jobs and pay).

TUC policy agreed this year as Composite 10 commits our movement to campaign to defend pension provision in the private and public sectors. This is also in line with UNISON Conference Policy.

We know that axes are being sharpened for our public service pension schemes - and it is vital that public sector workers rally to support private sector comrades fighting to defend decent pension provision. We all need decent pension provision.

The TUC did well to point out that some people are doing ok when it comes to pensions - but now we need to see the Campaign for which Congress called.
