petition.parliament.uk 5 million people rely on the LGPS to pay their pensions. Government wants powers over LGPS investment funds, but they could gamble away members’ money on infrastructure projects. This is not allowed in any other UK scheme, including the MPs'. The LGPS must be invested in members’ best interests.

UNISON and Unite members have voted to reject the government’s 1% pay offer and given their respective unions a mandate to take industrial action should the employer refuse to renegotiate the offer.
GMB members voted 90% in favour of accepting the 1% offer therefore will not be taking any action but no doubt will happily accept any improved offer gained by UNISON and UNITE.
Remember you are entitled to UNISON representation during consultation periods in respect to changes to your terms & conditions. You have the right to postpone such meetings until your rep is available.

UNISON Cymru Wales Manifesto 2016: For the public services we need http://ow.ly/Zv5tE
Mr Corbyn said: "I congratulate the Welsh Labour government on their work to stand up for trade unionists in Wales.
"Welsh Labour, unlike the Conservatives in Westminster, know that strong public services rely on a well-trained, safe and decently-paid workforce."
We therefore request the reasoning behind the lack of support shown by elected members towards the trade unions Jeremy Corbyn Welsh Labour Carwyn Jones
Plaid Cymru Leader Leanne Wood AM has said that the UK Government’s regressive Trade Union Bill must not apply to Wales.
“In government, my predecessor as Plaid Cymru Leader worked with the trade unions as part of a partnership approach to dealing with the previous financial crisis. After next May’s Welsh Assembly elections, a Plaid Cymru Government would open the door to trade unions who were interested in developing and improving our public services and also improving the skills of our workforce.”
Ms Wood noted that the Bill’s provisions would affect workforce development and industrial relations within the public services which are already devolved to the National Assembly.
The bill would affect workforce development and industrial relations within health, education and other core public services which are already controlled by Welsh Governments.
We therefore request the reasoning behind the lack of support shown by elected members towards the trade unions Leanne Wood Plaid Cymru
