Yesterday marked a very important day in our journey to secure our new pension scheme – the first of its kind in the United Kingdom.
This consultation commences with the following encouraging statements of support from key figures:
Against that backdrop, please find attached the Department for Work & Pensions consultation document and press release which was issued yesterday, with comments from Guy Opperman, Jon Millidge and the DGS(P). Colleagues will note that the consultation will run for 12 weeks and then the Government will bring forward the legislation change to enable our scheme.
This is a proud moment for our union and could not have been achieved without the loyal support of our members.
Please ensure the content of this LTB is shared as widely as possible with our Representatives and members.
Any enquiries in relation to this LTB should be addressed to the DGS(P) Department quoting reference 24111a.
Deputy General Secretary (Postal)
