Nuclear Workers' Pensions

EDM number 915 in 2016-17, proposed by Albert Owen on 02/02/2017.

That this House is greatly concerned about the proposed pension reforms to civil nuclear workers on Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) estates; notes that during the course of the Enterprise Act 2016, these workers were also marked for a cap to be imposed on their exit payments, and were assured at the time that their pensions would not be affected; further notes that the terms and conditions that NDA workers were employed on played a crucial role in retaining their vital skills as part of the workforce, and to renege on these promises would not be repaying their commitment with the gratitude it deserves; is alarmed that these pension reforms could see some employees lose up to 75 per cent of their pension; recognises the dedication and professionalism of employees working to make NDA estates around the UK safe; and call on the Government to honour the commitments previously made to these employees and urge the NDA to reconsider the proposed pension changes.

This motion has been signed by a total of 1 MPs.
