Pension campaign to hit town

WOMEN from Dumfries and Galloway will next week be spreading the message in the fight for a fairer deal on pensions.

They are part of the national campaign group, Women Against State Pension Inequality, (WASPI), which aims to tackle the Government over the transitional pension arrangements for women born in the 1950s.
They have over 110 members, two of whom will take part in a demonstration in London next week.
Meanwhile, the group will also be in Dumfries town centre on Wednesday with leaflets and a petition.
Spokeswoman Lindsay McCormick said: “You don’t have to be directly affected – these pension changes have a huge impact on the lives of whole family groups, so everyone is welcome to join and support the WASPI women. The more voices that are raised together, the more chance we have of being heard.”
