Unions warn against dishonouring public sector pensions

Major unions have warned the Government that it faces a serious clash if it fails to honour the recent 'retire at 60' public sector pensions agreement.
TUC general secretary Brendan Barber said it would be 'ludicrous' for the Government to use a report on the future of pension provision in the UK as a pretext for unpicking the deal.

Lord Turner of Ecchinswell is expected to recommend that the state retirement age be raised from 65 to 67 when his Pensions Commission unveils its long-awaited report on Wednesday.
