LGPS – TPS Roundtable Discussion

Register here

This is a members’ only event Is your institution required to offer LGPS and TPS to eligible staff?  Does this cause financial pressures and difficulties with planning?  And how are you dealing with rising costs? Join AHUA members similarly affected to discuss the problems and possible solutions in an online roundtable discussion on Thursday 10 March, 12.00 – 13.00. Areas to explore include both the pension aspects, HR aspects and union engagement. Under Chatham House rules, hear from members who have introduced subsidiary companies to employ staff and been able to offer a competitive and more cost efficient DC pension scheme as a result. Ian Blachford, Chief Operating Officer at Staffordshire University, will share the two phases of pension reforms now introduced. The first involved setting up a subsidiary company and TUPE transferring existing LGPS staff into the new company, and new DC arrangements. The second involved closing the LGPS and TPS to all new appointees to the University and offering only a DC benefit arrangement. Matthew Andrews will cover similar issues in relation to pension reform for professional services staff at the University of Gloucestershire, where he is Secretary and Registrar. Get the benefit of their experience, hear about other ideas and solutions and establish contacts who can give advice and support in the future. Joining instructions will be sent in an email and a calendar invitation to registered AHUA members only during the week commencing 7th March.  If you have any questions, please contact info@ahua.ac.uk
