All health care workers in Manitoba who are part of the Healthcare Employees’ Pension Plan (HEPP) have received or will be receiving a letter indicating that HEPP will be making changes to the plan.
CUPE is opposed to the changes to the plan.
It is CUPE’s national policy to oppose two-tier pensions and benefits.
The creation of a two-tier pension will create division and inequity between current and future plan members.
The changes will also force some members to delay or change their retirement plans.
We believe that HEPP is a healthy, well-funded plan, and that these changes are not necessary.
We encourage CUPE members to visit the HEPP website (hebmanitoba.ca), carefully review the letter you will be receiving from HEPP, and call HEPP if you have any questions about changes they are making to the plan.
In Winnipeg please call (204) 942-6591
Toll free: 1-888-842-4233.
EMAIL HEPP AND TELL THEM WHY YOU OPPOSE THE CHANGES!
You can either submit the pre-written email (click “read the petition”, you can amend it to write your own!)
