The Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) has created a website as part of its campaign against Bill C-27, which it says threatens defined benefit pensions and “is not a path towards building stronger retirement security for Canadians.”
The campaign includes a website, a video and a call to members to participate in an online letter to federal finance minister Bill Morneau.
“Bill C-27 poses a serious threat to defined benefit pension plans and is not a path towards building stronger retirement security for Canadians,” Robyn Benson, National President of PSAC, is quoted saying. “Our campaign will help send this message to the government, as well as educate our members about their pensions and what is a stake.
“We need to build on the positive steps like the recent expansion of the Canada Pension Plan benefits to ensure that all Canadian workers have the retirement security they deserve. Protecting the pension benefits workers and retirees already have is critical to doing this.”
