Welcome to CUPE Local 4092, representing Air Canada Flight Attendants in Toronto!
The EAP Committee is always here to help out and can be reached in Toronto at (905)676-2088. With this time of year comes our first snow fall / storms, snow covered streets and highways, de-icing, delays, crowed planes and airports, parties, busy malls, difficulty commuting and much more.
Whether you celebrate the upcoming holidays or have celebrations throughout the year, Homewood Health has a few suggestions
on how to reduce stress during these times.
On October 19, 2016, the Liberal Government very quietly announced their pursuit of a new legislation, called Bill C-27, which would allow many Canadian employers to withdraw from their Defined Benefit (DB) Pension Plan obligations, and permit the conversion of secure DB plans into Target Benefit (TB) plans. A target benefit plan is the opposite of a DB plan: benefits can be reduced at any time (even in retirement) and employers bear no risk (members bear the risk in a TB plan). If passed into law, this would endanger the retirement security of millions of Canadians, and could potentially be applied retroactively, and even compromise retirees’ existing benefits. Click here
