Teaching Unions Blame Veterans For Strike

I have just been told that teachers union leaders in the Portsmouth area have been telling teachers that the increased pension contributions they are being asked to pay are actually going to be used to subsidise army pensions. It seems that as always the lunatics are in charge at the NUT and their allies.

The Teachers' Pension Scheme (TPS) is the 2nd largest Public Sector Pension Scheme in England & Wales with over 1.4 million members. The TPS is a defined benefit final salary scheme and is one of the most important and valuable benefits available to teachers. Teachers' Pensions - Home Page

"We are going to be paying considerably more for considerably less and we are going to have to work for longer” says the Chairman of the UCU for Middlesex University. .....Good. You'll have to work longer and pay a bit more in to your retirement fund, like some without a public sector pension will have to do.

" The TPS not only provides you with a lump sum and regular income after you retire but also provides your family or other dependants with financial protection after you die. The TPS is contracted-out of the State Second Pension (S2P) on a Reference Scheme Test basis that means the TPS guarantees to pay benefits which are at least as high as those the state would pay. Although you will be contracted out of S2P you will receive the Basic State Pension in addition to your teacher's pension" Teachers' Pensions - About the Scheme - Introduction

Doesn't seem a bad deal to me? Index linked pension, subsidised by the employer.

Of course, the trauma of working with schoolchildren, and those long holidays "spent marking work" must be just awful and in no way compares to the easy life most veterans "enjoy" s. How do those teachers do it? On a meagre wage of over £35000 in some cases and starting salary of over £21000.

Closing the nation's schools and rallying in London must have really helped their militant woolly back image , no end.

Yeah. One of the strikers told me that actually they all wanted to increase their pensions so they could give more money to charities and spend their time looking after veterans. No really, they did.








Nah, alright then - I made it up too.

interesting fact I read, teachers on a basic rate will retire with a pension pot of 500k, headteachers with 1.4 million which at the moment is way over the private schemes and most of the public ones.

and yet most are fcuking hopeless - they should tie pension credits to the number of kids who leave their school who can read and write.

just like mil pensions should link in to fitness, no pft no pension - good way to thin out the air chiefs. and I'm sure stacker will moderate it for free.

no pft no pension
You are Stacker's love child and I claim my 50 press-ups

Personally I think as the military's prime goal is all about winning wars, not pointless PT, how about no pensions for those that haven't won yet?

And on the new scheme it will average £16,000 a year after 30 years. OK, so no lump sum but the current average of 10,000 plus 30k lump sum would be £130000 after 10 years retirement (not counting rises) whereas the new one will be worth £160000 after 10 years. WTF are they complaining about?
