RMT view that the TfL Pension Fund is well funded is now confirmed

Dear Colleague,

TFL PENSION FUND - INDEPENDENT REVIEW

I refer to my previous email, 11th September 2021, as the RMT has been maintaining since the Independent Review of the TfL Pension Fund was announced it is our view, based on actuarial advice, that this final salary pension scheme is well funded and not in a position where our members benefit need to be reduced or their contributions need to increase.

RMT bulletin: we can and must win this battle

The government, TfL and London Underground consider EVERYTHING that makes our job bearable and worthwhile as up for grabs. Pensions, job security, pay rises and your framework agreements are all threatened... If we don’t stop them! 

Last year we were heroes, now we’re just a cost 
on an accountant’s balance sheet. Management are going to try and con us into believing that if we cooperate with attacks on jobs, pay, pensions and conditions they will be in a better position to negotiate with the government for funding.
