All retired members are welcome to attend, as are working UNISON members. Refreshments will be provided.

Where: County Hall, Chichester
When: 12:00noon, Friday 11th May 2018

The regular retired members meeting will follow immediately after at approximately 1.15pm.

WASPI (Women Against State Pension Inequality) is a campaign about injustice done to all women born in the 1950s affected by changes to the state pension law.

The 1995 Conservative government’s Pension Act included plans to increase women’s SPA (state pension age) to 65, the same as men’s. WASPI agrees with equalisation but does not agree with the unfair way the changes were implemented.

Their aim is to campaign for fair transition in state pension arrangements for all women born in the 1950s. They are not campaigning for the pension age to revert back to age 60.
