    Trustees from across the country will share knowledge and experiences of the many complex issues they face.

    They will continue to develop strategies to defend and strengthen our members’ pensions and expand pension coverage to all.

    The meeting is free, but trustees must pay for hotel and travel costs. Some trustees may be able to get their pension fund to cover their hotel and travel.

    Organizers have some money available to subsidize trustees to ensure the conference has participants from pension plans that cover all CUPE’s membership.

    The meeting will be in english and french.
