Sue Hayman, Labour MP for Workington said:
“The Tories are letting down staff at Sellafield by raiding their pensions, leaving thousands of workers stripped of their retirement incomes.
“Employees struggled to secure their pension protections. Any proposals to trample over those hard fought for incomes, will understandably not be well received. Some staff will lose tens of thousands of pounds.
“Workers are paying the price for six years of failed Tory economics.
“Only Labour can be trusted to ensure that workers at Sellafield have a dignified retirement.”
