Launch of rail union pension campaign

03 March 2006

Next Monday – 6 March - the leaders of the main rail unions – ASLEF, RMT and TSSA – will be at the TUC to launch a major campaign to defend the current level of pension provision in the industry.


Keith Norman, Bob Crow and Gerry Doherty have called a media conference at 1000 in Room One of the TUC’s Congress Suite in London’s Great Russell Street.


The campaign’s essential demands will include keeping contributions at agreed levels, maintaining benefits, keeping schemes open to new entrants and moving towards a single pension fund for all rail employees.


A series of meetings with railway workers will be held UK-wide by the three general secretaries in a tour that will take in Cardiff (March 9), York (March 21), Glasgow (March 28), Edinburgh (March 29), Birmingham (April 3), Bristol (April 5) Perth (at the STUC, April 11), Manchester (April 19) and London (April 20). All meetings commence at 18:30, except Perth which is 18:00.
