UNISON nationally are looking to include a short-term, ‘low cost option’ in the new LGPS from 2014. The intention would be to enable non-members of the scheme to join the LGPS on a 50% contribution and benefits basis as a way of moving towards full membership of the scheme. It would also enable members to reduce contributions for up to three years at times of financial hardship.
They have designed this short ‘Survey Monkey’ survey to seek members’ views of this possible option. There is a two-week completion window, with a deadline of 30 March. We would like as many responses as possible so please circulate this email to your colleagues.
You can access the survey via the link below.
