Pensions knowledge centre
UNISON is working to defend good pension schemes and improve and promote affordable, decent pensions for all our members, wherever you work.
We negotiate changes to improve pensions on behalf of our members, and defend the pensions of members who are transferred between employers - from the public to the private sector.
UNISON also acts to affect government policy on pensions, including state pensions and pension credits.
