Canada Labour Code & Protect Your Pension
The Federal Government needs to take Ontario’s lead! Recently Ontario announced changes to the Ontario LabourCode, including a $15 minimum wage, vacation improvements,emergency care leaves and restrictions on employersrequesting sick notes. Alberta also recently passed legislation
updating labour laws and making it easier to unionize. Now it’stime for the Federal government to step up to make changes to make it easier for workers to balance work, family and financial responsibilities. Let’s drag the Federal Government into the present, write to your MP and demand they modernize the Canada Labour Code too! Check out the Ontario Workplace Review Recommendations and proposed changes on the Ontario Ministry of Labour athttps://www.labour.gov.on.ca/english/
And while you're on your type writer........Defend your Pensions!!!
Express concern with Bill C-27, introduced in Parliament inOctober 2016. It would allow Crown corporations and federallyregulatedemployers to push employees to surrender defined
benefit pensions in favour of target benefit plans. In tough times,target benefits can be reduced, providing less retirement security for its members bad news for seniors, and our
economy. In 2015, Prime Minister Trudeau promised Federal Retirees that defined benefit pensions “which have already been paid for by employees and pensioners, should not be retroactively changed into [target benefit plans]”. But Bill C-27 would permit exactly that. We believe you should act to protect the retirement income security that’s already been earned by us and millions of other Canadians in definedbenefit plans, and reconsider the provisions in Bill C-27 that would allow retroactive pension
changes. Prime Minister Trudeau should honour his promiseand continue efforts to build better retirement income security for Canadians. Read more at www.cupe.ca
