  • The Issue

    In November 2010 the Government decided to erode the value of our pensions. Pensions to which we have contributed over a life time of work on the promise of RPI increases on retirement. The government lowered the floor on increases and BT siezed on the opportunity to take £2.9 Billion pounds from the pension fund to give to shareholders.

    The National Federation Of Pensioners is doing some great work on providing information. If you are not  a member you should consider joining. http://nfop.org.uk/ its campaigning on the issues is interesting.
