We Pay We Deserve A Say
OCEU will leave no stone unturned in our collective efforts to protect the employee pension plan from any unnecessary cuts.
The parties have a shared interest in addressing the Pension Plan solvency deficit. The primary option we are pursuing includes:
- Permanent solvency relief available by converting the existing single-employer pension plan (SEPP) to a jointly sponsored pension plan (JSPP) which does not require any cuts.

*Over 2000 members signed the pension petition and all of these have been submitted to the Provincial Government!

We hope to have the Ontario Grievance Settlement Board decision the fall of 2013.
