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.

The Grievance Settlement Board hearings commended Decemeber 2011 and wrapped up in September 2013. A binding decision is pending. :

  • Policy grievances for field staff that have been told the business will not consider either 10/9 or 5/4 FWA's.
  • Policy grievance regarding the approach to start times and finish times.
