The group Women Against State Pension Inequality (WASPI) is staging a ‘National Local Day of Action’ on Friday 26 May in the run up to the General Election.
WASPI is a campaign group that fights against the injustice done to all women born in the 1950s affected by the changes to the State Pension Law.
The aim of the day is to keep WASPI at the forefront of all local candidates’ minds and to raise awareness of the campaign.
At the Society’s recent Annual Delegates Conference, members voted to carry Motion 13, which called on UK Council to support the WASPI campaign and to make a donation to the running costs of the campaign.
Following ADC, Paul Bromley, Regional Officer for London, paid a visit to WASPI in Liverpool to discuss the campaign and to advise them of the successful motion.
He commented: “This is a very important issue which affects many of our members, so we encourage everyone to support the campaign where possible.”
UK Council will be discussing the campaign at their May council meeting.
