NLPSPA Response to Premier’s Economic Recovery Team (Greene) Report

On of the most disturbing recommendations in the Premier’s Economic Recovery Team (Greene) Report for us as public sector retirees is the recommendation on page 222 “that pensions be converted to a collective defined contribution plan in three years”.  In keeping with the purpose of our Association to take all necessary actions to protect our pensions and to act on any matter affecting our well-being, your Association yesterday made the attached submission to the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador. We encourage you to read this submission, share your support for the Association’s position, and that you speak up and speak out whenever and wherever you can, especially to your local MHA, that this is an unacceptable recommendation and would be an unforgiveable action on the part of the Government.
