Following the breakdown of talks at ACAS staff staff at Capita have started nine days of industrial action in a pensions dispute with the outsourcing company.
The dispute centres on Capita’s attempts to close the current defined benefit scheme and transfer staff to a defined contribution scheme.
Unite members are taking nine continuous days of strike action starting on Saturday 28 October 2017 ending on Sunday 5 November.
Unite conducted an industrial action ballot following the proposal to close the current defined benefit scheme. In June Capita informed its employees of significant changes to the pension arrangements. Staff in the scheme will suffer a massive cut in their retirement income as a result of the proposals.
