The General Secretary of the TUC, Brendan Barber, has welcomed the
Pensions Bill which was published today and said that: ‘Many of its measures have been at the top of the union pensions campaign agenda for years.’

He added: ‘However those employees who have already lost out should not be forgotten. Many employees of companies such as ASW were contractually required to join their occupational pension and were made a specific pensions advice promise by their scheme that has now been broken. They should be compensated.’
