PENSION


Shoreworkers are automatically enrolled in the Shoreworkers Pension Fund in the January after you have worked 1000 hours in your plant.  Once you are enrolled, your Pension Statements will be mailed to you each spring.  Pension benefits are complex.  If you need information on your pension call the Shoreworkers Pension Fund  604 519 3636  or

Every BENEFIT has been won through collective bargaining.  Shoreworkers struggled hard and made sacrifices to achieve these benefits. They were not given to them.
