Dear QUFA Members,
Please find attached an information bulletin about the University Pension Plan project that QUFA has been involved in for a few years now. This is the first official communication from those who have been working on establishing a new, jointly-sponsored pension plan for the university sector (the UPP) which includes the administrations, faculty associations and United Steelworker unions at the University of Toronto, Guelph University and Queen’s University.
We will be following up with more and more specific information for Queen’s Pension Plan members as it becomes available. We will also be addressing this issue at our QUFA Spring General Meeting on April 19 so save that date and watch for announcements.
Please note that the website (www.universitypension.ca) referenced in the bulletin is not yet active. It should be functional by early next week and will be a source, along with the QUFA website (https://www.qufa.ca/member-services/pension-information/), of information going forward.
Please send in any questions you have as we are in the process of creating a “Frequently Asked Questions” document as well as tailoring our presentation in April to your concerns.
Kayll Lake & Paul Young
President & Pension Committee Chair
