Pensions

Receiving an adequate pension following usually several decades of work is vitally important for being able to live a decent life in retirement.

A problem that makes the situation even worse is false self-employment, because of which many workers cannot make sufficient payments into their pension. Between late 2012 and 2017, the so-called Auto-enrolment pension is being introduced aiming to ensure that more workers have a better pension when they retire.
 
UCATT has fought for many years to improve the pension entitlements of construction workers, whether they work in the public or private sector, in a low skilled or higher skilled job.
