days until our Collective Agreement expires, we are preparing, we are united and we will make change.

Pension While on CERB and Extension to the Bid Deadline

The employer has agreed with the Union, that if you opt to take the CERB program, you will have the option to buyback your pension.  You will have this option for 90 days when you return to active duty.  You will be required to cover your portion and the employer’s portion.

We have also reached out to the employer to request a bid extension and will advise once we have any further information.

Please be reminded, that at this time, bidding for Rouge closes today at 23:59 EDT and Mainline closes today at 20:00 EDT.

We wanted to get this out immediately, more info to come, we understand you have lots of questions, please continue to reach out.

In solidarity,
