As a follow-up to the announcement made a few weeks ago regarding the Early Retirement Incentive Program (ERIP), your Locals and Component have been hearing from many members expressing interest in the program but requesting a better understanding of what the program offers. In response to those inquiries, next week we will be hosting multiple webinars to review the ERIP Program and answer some of your questions.
The sessions will be hosted on Zoom by the Component Secretary-Treasurer and the Component Pension Committee. Login information will be emailed to you the day of the session. Each session has a limited capacity of 100 members, so please only register if you are considering retirement through the ERIP program. Please note the presentation will be in English.
The sessions available are as follows:
|Tues., May 4||10:00 EDT||08:00 MDT||07:00 PDT|
|Tues. May 4||17:00 EDT||15:00 MDT||14:00 PDT|
