ARE YOU A MEMBER OF A PENSION PLAN MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE?
ARE YOU INVOLVED IN NEGOTIATING A NEW PENSION PLAN?
DO YOU WANT A BETER UDERSTANDING OF PENSION PLAN ISSUES?

IF SO…READ ON…


Pensions are deferred wages and therefore a vital collective bargaining issue. Despite the importance of pensions for our members, however, many unions struggle with what can be a complex issue. 
 
It is important for the trade union movement to increase the number of activists who can understand pension plans, whether the plan is now being set up or being re-negotiated in a collective agreement. The Labour Advisory Bureau, a non-profit Company, established by the National Workers Union has organised a course designed to develop the skills of union activists in understanding and negotiating pension plans 
 
The Course is aimed at trade unionists who are on pension management committees, are negotiating new pensions plans or simply wish to have a better understanding of pension plans. The course is entitled FROM THE WORKPLACE TO RETIREMENT – UNDERSTANDING PENSIONS 

For more details of the Programme’s course content see here

The facilitators of the course will include veteran trade unionists with over twenty years experience in pension matters. 

Details of the course are:


Date: Friday 9th and Saturday 10th May 2014

Time: 8 am to 4 pm

Place: TIWU Office, 114 Eastern Main Road, Laventille
