Pension Arbitration Update

Ian ClysdalePensions

update12The Union and the employer were scheduled to proceed to arbitration September 26-29 with respect to the two pension grievances — the Employer initiated grievance was the grievance where the University wanted an arbitrator to rule on whether or not the University can make unilateral changes to OUR pension plan;

The union initiated a grievance where we questioned the  employer taking pension contribution holidays.

Due to some preliminary legal matters that were unable to be resolved prior to the arbitration dates, the arbitrations have been rescheduled for April 24-28, 2017.

We have asked the employer to provide us with prospective dates for negotiations.
