Union responds to further consultation on Fair Deal

The FDA has responded to HM Treasury's further consultation on the Fair Deal reforms, which form part of the Public Service Pensions reform agreements. The TUC and other unions have submitted similar responses.

FDA members voted to accept a packet of measures, including Fair Deal,  in the union's ballot. on the 2015 pension scheme  The Fair Deal arrangements - which currently apply in the rest of the public sector, but not the civil service - included the provision for scheme members to retain membership of the civil service pension scheme if they are compulsorily transferred to another employer outside the public sector.

As a core part of the agreement, the FDA is looking to ensure that the Government honours this agreement in full.
