Pension Update

The Chief Secretary to the Treasury, the Right Honourable Danny Alexander MP has publicly commented on public sector pensions today.

The POA National Executive Committee, are extremely disappointed that at such a critical time in negotiations he has chosen to make deeply inflammatory public interventions, which appear designed to pre-empt the talks on the 27th June 2011.

It would appear he is threatening that even worse terms might be imposed if Unions refuse to acquiesce to the assault on pensions.  The POA will continue to have dialogue with other public sector trade unions to determine our response.

We have decided to convene a Special National Executive Committee meeting on Thursday 23rd June 2011, in order to discuss this important development.  The membership will then be updated accordingly.



Yours sincerely

General Secretary


Yours sincerely

National Chairman
