Final BT Pensions Message from Andy Kerr as deadline Approaches
Andy Kerr Urges All BT Members To Say No To BT Proposals Via Their Survey
BT's Proposals At A Glance
BT launched a formal 60 day consultation on proposed changes to the company pension scheme on 15th November 2017. The CWU has not reached agreement on any of the proposals. BT’s proposals could radically change pension provision across the company with both the BTPS and BTRSS members affected by different proposals, which the union believes fail to provide decent pension provision in retirement, the CWU are urging members to firmly say no to all of BT’s proposals for both schemes.
The proposals are :
BT Pension Scheme
In a separate consultation BT is proposing that Proposal 1 should apply to all Section B/C members of the scheme who are managers and those covered by the New Reward Framework
BT Retirement Saving Scheme
Tell BT No
Our response is clear. None of the proposals for either pension are acceptable.
All options for both pension schemes should be rejected.
You deserve better – BT can afford more.
BT must not make changes to either pension without agreement with the CWU.
More details are contained in the attached leaflet which is being sent to all members at their home address this week. Please make sure that the leaflet is circulated as widely as possible.
Secure Your Future
This is a crucial time for members’ pensions and retirement plans.
All CWU members are urged to respond to the BT consultation directly saying that you reject all the BT proposals for your pension and that you want BT to reach a negotiated agreement with the CWU.
The closing date for responses is 17th January 2018
