New pension plan for community social services

New pension plan for community social services

BURNABY—On April 1, CUPE’s community social services workers become eligible to join the Municipal Pension Plan (MPP). The ability to join the MPP was a major gain made in the 2006 round of bargaining. And as April 1 is fast approaching there are some good sources of information about the benefits of the plan and how to join.

The MPP has specifically developed material for community social services workers, including an on-line video about the pension plan and how to join.

A series called “The Value of Your Plan” – offers some short and information-packed videos about the plan benefits and why being a Municipal Pension Plan member guarantees you a paycheque for life.

Meetings are being arranged throughout the province, and local members should check with your union president, your local’s website, and the Community Social Services sector page of the CUPE BC website for information on meetings in your area as they are finalized.
