Joint Negotiating Committee

The Joint Negotiating Committee (JNC) has a number of responsibilities. It approves amendments to the rules proposed by the trustee, can itself initiate or consider alterations to the rules and can also consider any rule amendments proposed by the advisory committee. The JNC decides how contribution increases or decreases will be borne and/or what benefit changes should apply, in circumstances where the cost-sharing provisions under the scheme rules have been invoked. In addition, the JNC has a number of other responsibilities.

Funding and Benefits Sub-Committee

The Funding and Benefits Sub-Committee (FBSC) is a sub-committee of the JNC. It is primarily a discussion forum that considers and explores areas of business as required by the JNC and, where appropriate, develops recommendations for the JNC to consider. The FBSC has no decision making power unless the JNC delegates a specific decision to it.
