My answer to the statement they could do it again would be - thats true.Having said this It is worth bearing in mind that any contributions under the old scheme are protected and those terms and conditions for the contributions still apply. Any alterations will always be prospective to my knowledge. Obviously the less years you have under the existing scheme the more likely you will have to do the extra years.

Lets be clear on the shafting you are getting if you have 16 years or more to serve.You are expected to work until you are 60 and the work is expected to be front line core patrol shifts.G4S are expected to do the backroom roles and alot of the investigation.So its front line 24/7 and NPT.You will have to pass a fitness test until you are 60 years old every year or lose pay 5k a year and face being dismissed under unacceptable working rules.If you fail the fitness due to an injury/assault on duty then tough so what.So you are payng in the whopping 14% in for up to 41.5 years in the worst case scenario.A good percentage don't claim full pension now especially females The new proposals mean far less will get their pensions.Then the life expectancy for retired cops is bad enough now.Imagine what it would be wrestling with an ever more violent and desperate criminal fraternity up to being 60 years of age.
I have 4 to go and the apathy amongst my younger colleagues it will affect is astounding.The Federation ( all less than 10 to do) are a disgrace with apathy to the extent that the constables section has today withdrawn funding to the main fed JCC coffers.
I could go on at length and might yet,tomorrow.This site is mainly younger in service people.This thread aside its all which boots to buy etc etc.Wake up and realise the shafting we are getting.Pester the reps,e-mail your Mps,contact Fed HQ directly.
I suggest a vote of no confidence in the FED.

It's not a bed of roses in the HATO service either!!! more pension contributions, working for longer and less pension for when you finally retire, that's if an artic doesn't flatten you as you totter out to lane 2 to retrieve debris with your zimmer frame!!!! It'll be the first time in history that occupants of HATO/police cars will have disabled blue badges!!!

I think our only hope now is, when they try this on the teachers, they will get duffed up, which will give us a chance to get it redressed.
I sincerely hope that will happen for all of you, mind you the arbitrageurs, government, and the banks in the city of london will find some way to rob everyone no doubt, just as they have with all those hard working baby boomers, who did save for pensions and were then robbed.
