Alert me about debates like this

Tim Sharp: There is certainly a role for trade unions in working with employers to develop the best pension schemes they can for workers. At the moment, maybe conversations concentrate on contributions. Hopefully, in future they will also look at the types of schemes available. We would expect unions, where they have good relationships with employers, to be working with them, where there are single employers or in helping to develop multi-employer schemes. That is how we would see the role of the union.
