Pensions Lobby - 26th October

Decent pensions – securing the future for all

The joint union campaign against pension cuts (involving ASCL, ATL, NAHT, NASUWT, NUT, UCAC and UCU) is taking the unprecedented step of organising a joint lobby of Parliament on Wednesday 26 October 2011.

We hope at least one representative from every school and college in England and Wales will attend and demonstrate to Parliament the unity and determination of the entire profession in opposing cuts to our pensions.

For the vast majority of us Wednesday 26 October will be in half term, however, this date provides an opportunity to show large scale opposition, without disrupting our pupils' education or inconveniencing the public. Giving up a day of your leave will demonstrate the strength of your opposition to the changes.  This will give the Government a last chance to see sense before any further industrial action.
