Discrimination in Pension Schemes

Back to all Motions

2002 National Delegate Conference
25 February 2002
Carried as Amended

This Conference welcomes the support of employers’ bodies for amendments to the Local Government Pension Scheme to the purpose of removing/amending those regulations which discriminate against non-married partners including same sex.

Conference notes this matter now lies with the Government and that they have failed to progress the necessary changes to date as they are considering the financial implications of similarly amending other pension schemes.

Conference calls on the National Executive Council to actively campaign for immediate positive action on this issue and to seek the support of the Affiliated Political Fund in raising this matter within the Labour Party.
