Maritime Pensions Survey

Dear Colleagues,


It has been brought to the attention of the RMT that there are RMT members across the maritime industry who are either not a member of their employers occupational pension scheme or are not building up benefits which will provide them with an decent pension at retirement.

While there may be good reasons why an individual is not a member of their employers’ pension scheme it is important that we understand why this is the case and where possible negotiate with employers to try and improve the occupational pension schemes being offered to our members.

It has therefore been decided by your National Executive Committee to run a pensions survey across the whole of the maritime union membership so that the RMT can get a better understanding of pension provisions being offered to our members.

Once we have collated the information requested and considered the findings our intention is to then negotiate and campaign on behalf of our members to improve their retirement income.

Therefore, I would urge you to click on the link below and complete the Maritime Pensions Survey. All information will be kept in the strictest confidence and will be used to assist in improving our members’ occupational pensions:
