UK - Workers who have lost their pensions through company wind-ups will protest outside the Royal Courts of Justice in London.
More than 200 former Allied Steel and Wire, Dexion and UEF scheme members are expected to take attend the rally on February 13, which will block traffic through the Strand and Fleet Street.
The planned protest will be the latest in a string of London demonstrations by the group, including one that put a stop to traffic in Oxford Street last month.
Pensions Action Group spokesman John Hayter said the workers had been forced to take part in acts of “civil disobedience” because the government has refused to grant them compensation.
More than 100 former ASW workers from Wales also rallied for compensation marching from Cardiff city centre to the Welsh Assembly where they handed over a petition calling for the Pensions Bill to be amended to “guarantee full pension entitlement” to Welsh workers whose funds are in wind-up.
