Academies ‘blackmail’ teachers to take worse pensions

Some academies are “blackmailing” teachers into opting out of the Teachers’ Pension Scheme and joining schemes with worse benefits, a union leader has warned.

Chris Keates, general secretary of the NASUWT teaching union, said the issue had come to the fore since the government announced a large increase in employers’ pension contributions.

After being contacted by Tes, the DfE said it would contact the NASUWT to discuss the union’s concerns.
