Tell the government to protect your pension
We know that the continued stability of pension plans and the importance of a secure retirement are extremely important to MGEU members. Last night, the MGEU invited those in the CSSB, HEPP, CAB and WCEPB pension plans for two tele-meetings about potential changes to Manitoba pensions.
Members and retirees who have worked hard and invested in their own pension for many years, deserve a secure retirement. The Provincial Government will not be holding public meetings on any of these proposed changes to pensions. Instead, they’re accepting written comments and the MGEU is asking members and former members to send their opinions.
Tell the Pension Commission that:
- you do not agree with the introduction of Target Benefit and Shared Risk Pension Plan legislation;
- you disagree with any changes that will weaken the pension we have worked hard for
and planned our retirement on; and
- you expect the Premier to
keep his commitment that no changes would be made to public pension plans.
Here’s how to send your message
Please send your written comments to the Office
of the Superintendent, Pension Commission at firstname.lastname@example.org by February 21, 2018. If you are unsure about
what the potential changes might mean to your pension, please review the Q&A
About Pension Changes that the MGEU prepared or listen
to your tele-meeting again before emailing your comments. For an
even more in-depth look at Manitoba pensions before sending your submission, please read a recent CCPA report by Hugh Mackenzie called Pensions in Manitoba - What’s
Working, What’s Not, What's a Solution, What's Not.
