Pension Trustee

There is a election to appoint a new Trustee Director of the Centrica Pension Plan. Yorkshire Gas Branch are supporting the nomination for Karl Whitehead-Ross and urge our Centrica members to support Karl using the election forms you will recieve in the post.

Karl Whitehead-Ross

Protect Your PensionI’m a UNISON Branch Secretary and a recently elected Councillor.

Although all Pension Trustees are required to undergo pension training, I too have actively kept updated with regular training to better equip me in supporting staff.

I believe in applying common sense and fairness in decision making. We all work hard for a decent pension and we should ensure we retain and secure our benefits for our future.

We need a scheme which better listens and communicates with members; a scheme which maximises returns with ethical investment strategies; and a scheme which can guarantee a decent pension throughout our retirement.

Safeguard your pension by placing me as your first preference. Vote for change and save your pension!
