Our Pensions are Sacrosanct - challenge the shift from RPI to CPI
Demonstrate Monday 20th February
8:30am - 10:00am
Called by Unite, supported by GMB, CWU, NUJ, UNISON, PCS, pensioner groups
On 20 February 2012 Unite, along with a number of other unions will be appealing the High Court decision to reject our case for a judicial review on the issue of pensions. Our case challenged the government’s change to the way pensions are increased to take account of inflation; from using the Retail Price Index (RPI) to one using the Consumer Price Index (CPI).
The unions are questioning the government’s decision to up-rate future pension increases by CPI.
To raise awareness of the appeal the unions are organising a demonstration outside the High Court at 8.30am – 10am on Monday, 20th February. We need your support to show that Unite is opposed to this change.
The changes are being felt in the public sector, but are also taking hold across the private sector. From BA, RSA, Cummins and the Pensions Trust- to a range of others. Therefore, it is important that Unite members, from across a range of sectors, come out and show their opposition to this change.
