The Alliance of Retired Public Servants has completed a process of consulatation with constituent pension organisations (representing some 100,000 public service pensioners) on the government decision on pension restoration which is now set out in Part 111 of the FEMPI Bill 2015.
The Bill provides for the gradual restoration of pensions over 2016, 2017 and 2018 for about 65,000 public service pensioners — but with no end in sight for the remaining 25,000 pensioners who will continue to have their pension reduced under emergency powers.
Derek Ryan (PRO) Alliance addressed this issue in the RTE “Morning Ireland” Radio Programme on Wednesday, 28th October 2015.
