How can this be called a deal when all GPs will end up paying more towards their pensions?
Negotiation or imposition? What are our negotiators doing? Of course whenever the press talk about our pay they will neglect to mention that fact that more than 25 per cent of it has to be paid into our pensions.
Then we will be attacked for having a generous pension plan. What other employee pays more than 25 per cent of their income into a pension plan over which they have no control?
It is time we got some proper negotiators working from our perspective.
