Utilities V Pensions

Back to all Motions

2007 Retired Members' Conference
13 June 2007
Carried as Amended

Once again, this vital issue is being raised at this Conference. Pensioners across the country are now facing yet again massive increases in utility bills. The increases in occupational and Government pensions do not meet the increases imposed by the utilities.

This Conference instructs the National Retired Members Committee and calls on the National Executive Council to pursue joint action with the National Pensioners Convention, Trade Union Congress and all other appropriate organisations

to demand that this Government and any other subsequent Government, takes drastic steps to remove this burden from the shoulders of all pensioners in the country, and allow them to have the basic services which they should be entitled to without worry of debt.
