'Public sector bashers' wrong

Madam – I refer to comments made by Eoghan Harris on public service pensions (Sunday Independent, December 2, 2012).

He states "on retirement public sector workers get a tax-free lump sum of 1.5 times salary plus a pension equal to half their salary". He also states "all (tax-free sum, pension) paid for by the majority of private sector workers".

These comments are similar to others made by the "public sector bashers" in that they are misleading and inaccurate.
