The Government will face down any union demands to abolish the pension levy which was imposed on public sector workers during the financial crash, the Sunday Independent has learnt.

Finance Minister Paschal Donohoe will vehemently oppose any changes to pension contributions paid by public sector workers during future pay talks with unions.

Mr Donohoe is understood to believe unions will make the pension levy the main battleground on pay ahead of the next election.
