    Safety of 1199 pension fund
    Someone emailed me a few months ago to say that although it was illegal for unions
    To invest in junk bonds, they are investing is something that comes close to that and
    That eventually I can lose my pension. He encouraged me to find out what my
    Union was investing in to keep our money safe and no one would give me an answer.
    How can I find out.
