Pensions Update

Fujitsu has confirmed a further extension to the timescales for the proposed closure of the ICL Defined Benefit pension plan.
Consultation on pensions will not end before 23rd October 2009 and no member would be affected by the change prior to 28th February 2010 (longer if on more than 13 weeks notice).
This is welcome news, but we still need to see real movement in the company’s position.
