Commenting on the reports that the government is to crack down on ill-health

retirements, Jack Dromey, T&G national organiser for public services, said: 'Focusing simply on headline costs and urging a 'crackdown' ignores why

ill-health retirement has increased. Throwing good people on the scrap heap

or, conversely, working them to the bone is simply bad employment practice.

'The government ought to be consulting with unions on ways of setting an example of good practice for employers. Better occupational health, more flexibly working patterns and a more productive work/life balance is the way we will keep our workers in good health.

'The sledgehammer approach is totally unjustified.'
