Calling all pension activists! We need your help to cancel the cuts, and protect our OMERS pensions.
Our OMERS pension plan has been under attack in recent years, but you can help reverse the cuts.
Participants will have the option to attend in-person at CUPE Ontario, 80 Commerce Valley East, Markham ON, or virtually. The two sessions will be run simultaneously, but there is no option for hybrid.
CUPE Ontario will hold two full days of pension education, skills-building, and campaign strategizing as we gear up to defend our OMERS pensions in 2023 and beyond.
What you’ll learn:
- The history of cuts at OMERS: The OMERS corporate boards and executives have been on the offensive against plan members and our unions – and more concessions could be coming.
- How pension plans work: find out what’s wrong at OMERS, meet other union activists, and play a leadership role in CUPE Ontario’s campaign.
- How we can cancel the cuts: We can protect OMERS and prevent further cuts by building a cross-sector, intergenerational coalition of activists.
ALL CUPE members who are also OMERS members are eligible for this free training.
Equity as well as sectoral and geographic diversity will be considered in selecting participants for this training.
Interested? Fill out the application by Thursday, December 22; you’ll hear back from us in January.
Can’t make it? Further training dates are planned for in 2023.
