Pen­sion changes set to be­gin next year

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

THE Govern­ment has con­firmed it is press­ing ahead with rais­ing pen­sion con­tri­bu­tions next year for teach­ers and civil ser­vants even though there is no agree­ment with unions. Up to two mil­lion pub­lic sec­tor work­ers went on strike last month in protest at the con­tro­ver­sial pen­sion changes, and in­ten­sive talks have since been held to try to break the dead­locked row. The Ed­u­ca­tion Depart­ment and the Cabi­net Of­fice yes­ter­day an­nounced that changes from next year would go ahead, although fur­ther talks will be held about fu­ture ar­range­ments.
