Evidence to the Independent Public Service Pensions Commission
The Coalition Government established an Independent Public Service Pensions Commission in June 2010 with Lord Hutton as its Chair to carry out a fundamental structural review of public service pension provision and make recommendations on arrangements that are "sustainable and affordable in the long term, fair to both the public service workforce and the taxpayer and consistent with the fiscal challenges ahead, while protecting accrued rights".
The NASUWT does not believe any further review of public service pensions is necessary, following the agreement on reforms that came into a effect from 2007, and submitted evidence to the Commission to this effect.
The Commission published an Interim Report in October 2010, arguing the case for change and short term savings in respect of public service pensions.
The Commission's Final Report and recommendations were published in March 2011.
The NASUWT submitted evidence to both the Interim and Final Report of the Commission. This evidence can be found in the 'Resources' section on the right-hand side of this page.
