Calling Union Pension Trustees and Pension Advisory Committee members! CUPE will be offering its Pension Trustee training in Ottawa, January 15-17, 2019

During this three-day workshop, you will learn about:

  • Your role as a union trustee or advisory committee member;
  • Fiduciary duty and options for maintaining plan funding;
  • Working with actuaries, legal counsel, investment managers;
  • Responding to pressure to invest pension funds in privatization including P3s;
  • How we can defend against attacks on pensions.

Union pension experts will deliver the training using a participatory, hands-on approach. Participants will build pension skills, meet other pension activists, share knowledge, tips, and strategies.

This workshop will be delivered in English only. You must be a pension trustee or a member of a pension advisory committee to attend. Training is open to CUPE members and CUPE staff, as well as to trustees and committee members from other unions who sit on pension boards/committees with CUPE representatives.
