Directors of the UK's top companies have amassed pensions worth nearly £1 billion (£891m), according to the annual TUC PensionsWatch survey.

Fund managers get more secretive over voting record
Trades Union Congress (TUC)
22 Jun 2007 United Kingdom Legislation, Investment - Management, Industry Bodies (excl. Regulatory Bodies)
The TUC has called on the Government to activate legislation already on the statute book to force fund managers to disclose how they vote, following a drop in the number of fund managers disclosing their voting record at company AGMs to the annual TUC survey. This year 25 out of the 55 organisations surveyed (45%) responded in full or in part to the TUC's fifth annual survey. This is a fall from 61% last year and 68% in 2005.

Pensionswatch 2006: An analysis of directors' pensions
Pensionswatch
Trades Union Congress (TUC)
6 Sep 2006 United Kingdom Pension Reform, Occupations/Industry Sectors, Executive Pensions
According to the annual Trades Union Congress (TUC) PensionsWatch survey, directors of the UK's top 100 companies have amassed pensions worth nearly £1 billion. The analysis shows that the average executive can retire at 60 on a pension worth nearly £3 million. Directors' final salary pensions are most likely to build up twice as fast as the most common rate for employees in defined benefit schemes, meaning that it takes staff 40 years, on average, to reach full pension but directors only half that time.
