Lesley 1st July<br/><br/>I would like to say that I am tired of the comparisons made between the Public and Private sectors they are not a like. If I meet all my targets and objectives I don't get a pay rise, When I work long hours I don't get overtime as there is no budget for this. In relation to pensions whilst I don't want the Dr's to go on strike what else can they do. When you join a pension fund you along with your pension provider agree terms and conditions you pay x and they provide y. Why do we are a group of people now accept that part way through a contract it is ok to change the terms of that contract so now we pay x + and you won't get y. Fine if as a group you want to negotiate for new entrants to the scheme enterng on new terms and conditions but please stop accepting that changes to your pension fund part way through a contract is fine because it isn't.
Have your say...<br/>I do not think taking industrial action will serve the course that they wish to achieve. Prison staff are not allowed to strike and I believe that Doctors should be bound by the same rules. Doctors, since the Age of the Enlightnment have been put on a pedestal and believe that the value they give to society is higher than anyone else and I would like to challenge that.
Have your say...<br/><br/>I appeciate that workers in the public sector get do work long hours and the pension is a perk. However whilst I understand this it is not sustainable in the long term. Private sector scrapped final salary payments and this is funded by the goverment and the tax payer. <br/>People are living longer and this isi a key fact. One that is overlooked. Public sector checkbook is not able to cover all these costs.
