Is this true?
Is this what the PCSU trade union admits when its leader makes the statements in public suggesting that the trade union is "defending" the poor?
How many pension credits claims are being suppressed, denied and blocked by staff at the London Pension centre in Newcastle?
These are some of the questions that we are pitting in the national campaign web site later today, Wednesday .
Please therefore let us have the PCSU union’s latest official, unambiguous and transparently accessible and recognisable position on these admittedly summarised questions as based on the empirically reported claims on behalf of and by the recipients of some of the worst barriers being put up by DWP London Pension Centre against poverty stricken pension credit claimants
The above are questions about principle.
So we shall not be accepting any comment that avoids the issues and resorts to not commenting in individual cases. We are NOT asking about cases. We could do. But we are not doing so here.
Does the PCSU union have any comment on the utterances by Steve Webb the pensions minister who has promoted the untruth that pension credit take up rate is low because [continues the lie] the pension aged people who are legally entitled to the pension credits are failing to make the claims out of ignorance?
What has the PCSU union said, if anything at all, about those pension credit claimants who are unlawfully being denied their credits?
