MYTH

 “The DB plan type that has been on the decline over the past number of years across the country”

FACT

While fewer private sector employers are offering DB pension plans, this plan type remains standard in the public sector.

91% of public sector workers who have a pension plan have a DB plan.

DB plans remain standard in the University sector, particularly for non-academic staff unions that CUPE represents.
