ABSTRACT
The article reports on the dispute between Alliance Boots and the Pharmacists' Defence Association (PDA) over the plan of the former to use transfer regulations to make changes to its final salary pension arrangements not allowed under the scheme. The union claims that the company will make the changes by requiring employees to transfer their employment to a new management company. The dispute is said to underscore the limitations of the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (Tupe) as it excludes pension schemes.
