Behind the service: a UNISON insight into Local Government

A new episode of the UNISON local government podcast ‘Behind the service: a UNISON insight into Local Government’ is out now. Episode 16 is about the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) with our guest Glyn Jenkins, UNISON’s Head of Pensions.

The LGPS, contrary to what some believe, is a vital benefit to those working in local government, and other employers.  That’s why it’s so essential for us to ensure two things: that we understand it and that we provide our support to ensure its survival.

Glyn Jenkins is our very special guest on the podcast this week as he takes us through everything you need to know about the LGPS and why understanding your pension is paramount.

This episode of the podcast covers:

  • Why it’s important to join the LGPS when working for councils schools, and other employers in the scheme
  • What are cost strains, and how do they occur
  • The UNISON campaign for fair pension compensation supported by both WASPI groups
  • The biggest concerns that UNISON members are bringing to Glyn
