Members of CUPE Local 1975:

A decision has just been rendered regarding the Employers’ pension grievance where it asked the arbitrator if it had the right to unilaterally change the pension plan. The decision is not in the union’s favour, but we will need some time to fully evaluate it and our options.

We know how important your pensions are.  Therefore, we will be holding a special meeting for our CUPE membership.

DATE:  Thursday January 4, 2018
