Protect Retirement Security
Across Canada, workers and pensioners can lose their retirement benefits if their employer goes bankrupt. Companies sell off assets and gut pensions to pay CEOs, creditors, and investors first. Workers and pensioners are left in the dust.
It doesn’t have to be this way. The federal government can play a major role in protecting workers and retirees.
Sign if you want the government to:
Change bankruptcy laws so that workers and pensioners are first in line, not last, when it comes to paying creditors.
Create Canada-wide mandatory pension insurance.
Change the rules so that companies can’t change their pension plans after they apply for bankruptcy protection.
- Work with Canada’s unions to preserve and expand defined-benefit pension plans.
