Consultation on Draft LGPS Nursery Assistant Amendment Regulations

19 January 2016

Following a job evaluation of nursery assistants employed by the Education Authority (the 5 former education and library boards), a collective agreement was reached to change their conditioned hours, subject to the protection of previous accrued pensions.

The Department of the Environment has issued a consultation on the draft Local Government Pension Scheme (Nursery Assistants) (Amendment) Regulations (NI) 2016 which amends the Local Government Pension Scheme Regulations (Northern Ireland) to give effect to this pension protection arrangement. This consultation seeks comments on these Regulations.

The consultation closes on 11 March 2016
