On a recent RiotACT thread about Green’s candidate Lyn Hatfield Dodds http://the-riotact.com/?p=23848, I suggested that she commits to full indexation of ComSuper pensions. In this government town, that may get her over the line at the looming election.
Lo and behold, today the Crimes reports that she supports proper indexation of service and APS pensions.
Now that both sides, Mike Kelly and Bob McMullen for the ALP, and Humphries for the Coalition, have failed to convince their respective parties of the fairness of such a move, perhaps the Greens can make the breakthrough.
To all current and retired service and APS personnel – this is the best reason yet for voting Green at the next election. Fair and equitable indexation will make your hard-earned pension last the distance.
