STOP 67 Campaign update

Members may recall that last January 2020 the GSU participated in the Stop 67 Campaign in conjunction with our colleagues in a number of other Trade Unions ( CONNECT SIPTU FORSA CWU and others )and civic organisations.

The campaigns primary aim was to stop the introduction of a new retirement age for qualification for the State Pension.

This was due to be introduced in January 2021 where the retirement age for qualification of the state pension scheme would go from where it is currently at 66 years of age to 67 years of age.

It is very important to note that the Government has decided not to introduce that change,  so 66 years of age remains the age for entitlement to the State Pension benefit . A commission to examine all aspects of pensions has also been established with Trade Union representation.

There are many other issue which the Trade Unions wish to raise on behalf of members in relation to the provision of pensions , but this is an important Victory for Trade Unionism and its partners in the campaign like Age Action Ireland , the GSU is proud to have made some contribution to the campaign and will continue to do so.
