Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If you took the pension benefits and aligned that with the lower wages, would it work out roughly the same overall in comparison with workers elsewhere? ie they may get to retire earlier but they make sacrifices (too extreme a word really) in their working life to get that benefit later on.

And in their plans to reduce the pension benefits, are they planning to compensate the workers by increasing the wages so as not to drastically reduce the terms and conditions of the workers?
