Use radio to defend pensions

10 November 2011

PCS members and supporters are being urged to challenge the government over public sector pension cuts by contacting radio phone-in shows.

You can call, text, email and use social media to interact with these popular programmes.

Make sure everyone understands that public sector workers will have to pay more for smaller pensions – and most will have to work longer too.

Make the point that private sector pensions have been axed by greedy bosses – not public sector workers.

And for most retired public servants the so-called “gold-plated” pensions are £5,000 a year or less – that’s half the minimum wage.

Keep the message simple and personal.

Remember:
If you are a civil servant don’t forget the civil service management code.
