An end to discrimination

Back to all Motions

2014 National Retired Members Conference
13 May 2014
Carried as Amended

Conference notes that there continues to be discrimination in both the state and occupational pensions for many of our retired members. In particular, women pensioners continue to receive a much smaller pension, on average, than men. There is also discrimination in the benefits to partners of LGBT Elders.

Conference instructs the National Retired Members Committee to work with the relevant Self Organised Groups at National level to investigate these discriminatory practices and to report back with proposals on how best they can be overcome.
