E-petition against the move to CPI rather than RPI increases for pensions

You can visit this link to sign a petition against the proposed change which will significantly cut our pensions.

Since April 2011, the government has said that public-sector pensions will only go up by CPI (the consumer price index) rather than the (normally higher) RPI measure. This means that all public-sector pensioners (and some in some private schemes) are getting their pensions uprated by less each year than they would do otherwise. The trade unions argued against it, but the government pushed ahead with it anyway.

Please click on this link to go to the E-petitions site and sign a petition against the change. If we are to ensure that people’s pensions aren’t eroded by inflation, then they ought to go up by the traditional RPI measure and not the stingier CPI one.
