PSI is working towards achieving Quality Public Services and Decent Work for all workers through intervention and influencing global policies. Pension and social security is integral in the context of QPS and Decent work. We believe that all workers in all services must have access to pension schemes enabling them to
retire from work and receive an income adequate for their needs.
The impact of austerity on public services has been monitored in a series of research reports. - Our members across Europe are facing a major struggle to defend their jobs and maintain the vital services that they provide, says EPSU general secretary.
More than 250,000 members of the Public and Commercial Services union in the civil and public services have started voting in a consultation over the next steps in the fight against the government's cuts to pensions.
They will be asked two questions: do they reject the government's latest pensions offer; and do they support an ongoing joint union campaign for fair pensions for all.
