Discussions with the Treasury ar Westminster
On Tuesday, July 23rd, 2019 General Secretary Dilwyn Roberts-Young attended an inter-union meeting with the Treasury at Westminster. The meeting was organised by the TUC, in order to ensure an opportunity to consider the judgment of the court case relating to pensions of firefighters.
Although the judgment is specific to that profession there may be far-reaching implications for all those working in the public sector including teachers, lecturers and leaders.
Co-incidentally, a written statement was received from Hannah Blythyn, Deputy Minister for Housing and Local Government, Welsh Government on the morning of the meeting.
This statement can be read here:
The TUC is now in dialogue with Rishi Sunak MP, the Chief Secretary to the Treasury and UCAC, the only representatives from Wales, will continue to receive updates from the TUC and attend further meetings as the discussions progress.
We will update our members when further information is shared with unions.
