Teachers Working Longer Review meeting
Since 2014 UCAC has regularly attended meetings with the Westminster Government to discuss the implications of the changes to Teachers' Pensions as teachers work longer and until they are older.
The General Secretary, Dilwyn Roberts-Young, was present in meetings on Wednesday, January 9th, when discussions focussed on the recommendations of the Working Longer Review for supporting teachers during their careers.
The Union has reported on the review and the challenge ahead is to change the culture in schools, authorities, at regional and national level to support teachers.
It's UCAC's intention to call for a meeting with Welsh Government, who are also present in the meetings, to consider the recommendations in the context of developments in Wales.
In the afternoon there was a further meeting to discuss the governance of Teachers' Pensions with government, employer representatives and union representatives. Only UCAC ensured a voice for teachers in Wales at the meeting.
