Management's 'Heads Up' document last week repeated the falsehoood that LU's contribution to our pension fund is becoming unsustainable. Gerry Duffy is using alarmist talk hoping that we won't 'rock the boat' any further and carry on with our dispute.
Thankfully, we don't have to rely on Gerry's word for updates on our pension. The RMT has members on the Pensions Consultative Committee, who oversee how the fund is doing. Members of the Committee have written to its Secretary and Chair asking for action to refute Gerry's claim. If possible, we would like an apology!
Our pension fund has been built up through years of fighting for it, paying into it and fighting to keep it. It is not to be used as a bargaining chip to destabilise our resolve when faced with inadequate pay and the destruction of job security.
