Serwotka: PCS union "determined to resist" public sector pension changes

More than two million public service employees have been told they will have to pay £1.1bn in extra pension contributions from April 2012.

The extra money from NHS workers, teachers and civil servants come as the government looks to shave £1.2bn off its pension bill next year.

Mark Serwotka, general secretary of the Public and Commercial Services Union, said the pension changes are "unfair" and his union was "determined to resist it".
