Norfolk Police Federation

Update from Fed on Judges & Firefighters pension challenge

25 January 2019

The Police Federation has issued a briefing paper in response to the latest Court of Appeal ruling on the judges’ and firefighters’ pension challenges.

The briefing, put together by the Federation’s research and policy team, gives the background to the concerns around changes made to pensions for many public sector workers – including the police, firefighters and judges – in 2015; the legal challenge made by the judges’ and firefighters’ unions; the effects of pension changes on police officers; the Federation’s stance; the details of the latest ruling and what possible remedies there might be.

When the latest ruling was announced in December, the Federation decided to seek further legal advice on its position. This legal advice will be from different barristers/solicitors than we've previously used.
