Pension rally, Sunday March 2

Posted February 26, 2014 in Union Updates, Pension Updates and tagged with pension, rally

AUPE members are urged to take part in a major pension rally organized by the Labour Coalition on Pensions this Sunday, March 2, at Sir Winston Churchill Square, Edmonton.

The Progressive Conservatives intend to make destructive changes to your pension plan. They haven’t negotiated these changes or engaged in any real consultation. This is your chance to defend your retirement and demand honesty and fairness from your MLAs.
