The Government has announced that a framework has been established to enable union executives to consider key pension changes. This significant step forward will help lift the cloud of uncertainty hanging over the NHS around pensions and industrial action.
The Heads of Agreement will enable union executives to consider key pension changes will allow local employers and trade unions to explain the changes to staff and provide reassurance on pension entitlements.
It is important that staff are helped to understand the details of the ongoing negotiations and the effect that this may have on their pensions.
To help you communicate this to your staff, we have summarised the key points of the framework on our NHS Pension Scheme page.
