The government is continuing its attacks on public sector pensions. Right now it's consulting on plans to let universities and colleges choose not to offer the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) to new staff.
This would create a two-tier workforce, locking out new colleagues from a decent pension scheme and particularly affecting women and those on lower pay.
It's also the thin end of the wedge – more changes like this could risk the future sustainability of all local government pensions.
Please send an email to your MP now asking them to help defend local government pensions for all staff.
