Mallowstreet Presentation to London UNISON Pension Reps

Yesterday lunchtime there was the quarterly meeting of the Greater London UNISON Pension network.

There was about 20 activists who attended. All of whom are observers or member nominated representatives on London LGPS (Local Government Pension Scheme) pension schemes. We also had an update from our Regional Secretary, Linda Perks.

The Pensions social media website "Mallowstreet" were our guest speakers.  Stuart Breyer and Victoria Sinclair from Mallowstreet (see picture) gave us an presentation about the site and what they do and what they can offer pension trustees.

It was a really useful meeting and we also had a far reaching debate about the on going governance and stewardship debate regarding the future of the £150 billion LGPS. It is currently completely unclear what will  happen but our national negotiators are busy arguing on our behalf so we will have to wait and see.
