This is positive news – but it does not go far enough. The issue has simply been kicked into the long grass, as the government plans to have a further review of the state pension age within two years of the next Parliament.
We must continue until we get a commitment from all major parties that they will not raise the state pension age in the next Parliament.
On Tuesday 2nd May at 2pm we will be handing in the petition, in Central London.
Please continue to share the petition with friends and family, in your workplace and your community. You can find the petition, as well as posters and flyers to print here
With 13,000 signatures on our petition, our campaign is growing fast.
When the working class stands together, young and old, we win.
