Dear Colleagues and fellow CMGers:
The departure of our Ottawa location president Sandra Cordon for the Bank of Canada means we are in need of a Guild member to take over her spot on the pension board of trustees.
While the Branch Executive will ultimately appoint the trustee, I would welcome hearing whether you or someone you know would be interested in serving on the pension board.
As you know, we are at an important juncture as we seek to redesign the CP/BN Guild pension plan to ensure it remains sustainable for the long term while delivering the benefits we expect. Trustees fulfill a vital role in safeguarding members’ pension interests. It’s a job that requires a feel for numbers, and an incredible eye for eye-glazing detail.
Please let me, or your local president, know ASAP if you or someone you know is interested as we need to make a decision in the very near future.
Finally, a word of thanks to Sandra, who has served all of us over many years as a member of the bargaining committee, Ottawa location president and, of course, as a pension trustee. Her efforts are much appreciated and she will be sorely missed. At the same time, we wish her all the very best with her new career.
CP/BN Branch President
