BBC interview: Dave Prentis attacks government pensions scaremongering

UNISON General Secretary Dave Prentis today rejected government attacks on public sector pensions in an interview on BBC Radio Scotland's Good Morning Scotland programme.

He hit out at claims the pensions are 'gold-plated', given the average pension in local government for women is just £50 a week.

The full interview is available on the BBC iPlayer at www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00sq2pn/Good_Morning_Scotland_15_06_2010/  at 1 hour 45 minutes into the broadcast.
