It is with a profound sense of sorrow and regret that the Institute informs you of the passing of our friend and colleague, Ed Sweet.
Ed passed away on November 17, 2019. Ed’s commitment to Institute members was deep and unwavering. He will be missed.
Until 2017, members of the Public Service Pension Plan were provided with an annual pension statement.
As a result of the failed Phoenix pay system, the Pension Centre has been unable to issue these statements.
The two guest speakers at the 100th AGM were David Coletto, CEO of Abacus Data responsible for conducting our 2019 membership survey, and Hassan Yussuff, a well-known champion for Canadian workers and president of the Canadian Labour Congress.
Debi wrote a follow-up to her October 23, 2019 meeting, during which you requested a short briefing note summarizing the Institute’s position and concerns regarding the potential transfer of our Civilian Members to the troubled Phoenix pay system.
