RCN pledge to continue to oppose pension age rise

16th May 2012

The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) Council has pledged to continue its opposition to the government’s planned pension reforms.

Speaking to the RCN Congress, Chief Executive and General Secretary Dr Peter Carter said the linking of the NHS workers’ pension age to the state pension age to be "absurd". While he acknowledged that some members had received "significant protection" from the changes made to the original pension offer, he said for others the plans remained "a kick in the teeth".
