The plan is legally a „jointly sponsored retirement plan“ (JSPP) under the Pension Benefits Act and is subject to the rules applicable to JSPs. As part of a JSPP, members and employers are involved in the management of the plan. Another example is long-term insurance coverage (LTIP). The employer submitted to LTIP a list of concession laundries that would have denied the coverage. Your negotiating team was able to remove each concession, but for only one. Under this provision, a LTIP member may retire with an unsued pension (using a factor 90 or the 60-20 plan) or have 30 years in the pension plan, depending on what is later, retire or continue on ITIP. However, if they continue to use the LTIP, they will have to pay their share of the pension contributions. With the expiry of the current collective agreement, movement in the payroll system will resume on January 1, 2018. On October 6, OPSEU announced that your Central/Unified PAHO negotiating team has entered into preliminary agreements with the employer for both the central collective agreement applicable to all OPSEU members in the Ontario Public Service (OPS) and the single collective agreement that covers all PAHO members outside the correction unit. October 27, 28 and 29 will be held in all regions of the province. The dates and times of ratification votes in Region 5 are shown below. Please also provide this information to your stewards and members and encourage each OPS member in your premises to take the time to vote.

The government completely ignored our position and initiated the process that will ultimately lead to a national shutdown. The current collective agreement for all PAHO workers expired on December 31, 2014. When he commented on the preliminary agreement, Thomas quickly began to summarize the government`s „zero net“ attitude. „Even when the Liberals cut the salaries of public employees, they treated the largest companies with generous tax cuts. These cuts cost Ontario $2.5 billion a year – more than the total wage bill of PAHO employees represented by PAHO. (TORONTO) – Members of PAHO`s Central Division voted 67 per cent in favour of the recent interim agreement between opsEU and the Ontario government, while Unified Division approved it at 78 per cent. The ratification took place on 27, 28 and 29 October. The new three-year contract applies for the period from January 1, 2015 to December 31, 2017. Among the strengths of the agreement: THE OPSEU retirement plan is the result of several years of discussions between the Ontario government and OPSEU on the creation of a pension plan in which members have a say.
