Proposed Changes to the Municipal Pension Plan

Dear Members,

The plan partners (unions, government, UBCM) of the Municipal Pension Plan have come to an Agreement in Principle (AIP) on proposed negotiated changes to the pension plan. At this time, CUPE BC is reaching out to members to share information about the proposed changes, answer questions, and hear feedback. When approved, these changes would only come into effect as of January 1, 2022 and would only apply to service after that date.
