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;
