It's disgraceful that there are two 'classes' of postmen who all do exactly the same job and some of us are contributing into a scheme that will leave us in pension poverty compared to those in the DB scheme!

That was seriously bad advice but unless you have written proof that was said to you, then I would have thought you’d have no chance whatsoever of any recompense.
Give it a year or so and we’ll all be in a DC scheme anyway!
