Hutton Says Pay More, Work Longer, Get Less – We Organise

The long awaited report by Lord Hutton on public service pension schemes was published on Thursday March 10th. As expected he is recommending long term

structural reform of the pension schemes that millions of public sector workers depend on.

 

 The report is 215 pages long with 27 recommendations it will take a little more time to digest all of the key issues. However the government can ignore all it if it wants to. More likely they will cherry pick the changes they want to make.

All of the issues around pensions will be taken forward by Dave Prentis in a series of negotiations with the government that will run up until June. Nothing will change, except pensioners benefit increases, until the negotiations with government have finished.
