ICTU Hits Out At Government's Pension Age Plans

The Irish Congress of Trade Unions has criticized moves by the government to raise the pension age saying it went too far too fast.

A new report has recommended the government delay increasing the state pension age.
The qualifying age was meant to rise from 66 to 68 by 2028.
But a study from the government-established Pension Commission has said the increase to 68 should not happen until 2039.
