While negotiations on pensions go on let's keep up the pressure by all UNISON members writing to their MPs and councillors.
You can find contact details for MPs and councillors here: http://www.writetothem.com/
All you have to do is put in your postcode. If you can't find your councillor there go to the website of your local council - councillors should be listed there, or phone them up and ask. Councillors are often listed in local phone directories as well.
For members of the Local Government Pension Scheme:
For general infomation follow this link: http://www.unison.org.uk/pensions/lgps.asp
This link takes you to a model letter to send to your councillor: http://www.unison.org.uk/acrobat/Model_Letter%20to_Councillors_and_LeaderCampaign5.doc but you can add your own personal views and tell them how it will affect you and your family.
This link takes you to a model letter to send to your MP:

For members of the NHS Pension scheme:
I'm afraid there isn't currently a model letter specifically for NHS pensions, but you can write your own. To help you there's lots of infomation here: http://www.unison.org.uk/pensions/healthcare.asp and you can also find more information in previous posts on this blog, and at http://www.unison.org.uk/pensions/protectour.asp
