Government's offer on public sector pensions reforms - NAPF Comment

02 November 2011

Commenting on the Government's offer on public sector pensions reforms, Joanne Segars, Chief Executive of the National Association of Pension Funds (NAPF), said:

“The Government’s announcement is an important milestone in the negotiations on public sector pensions reform. Such reform is necessary to guarantee their long-term sustainability and to ensure public sector workers can continue to receive good quality pensions.

“Ultimately, we need to avoid a race to the bottom. All workers, whether in the public or private sector, should have the opportunity to retire with a good pension.”

Notes to editors:

  1. The NAPF has four million public sector pension holders among its member pension schemes.
