 Teachers' Pension Plan Consultation Meeting:  please put this event in your calendar!

 The TPP Consultation meeting in Fort St. John will be held on November 9, 2015 at the Northern Grand Hotel from 6pm to 8pm in the Grand I and II Ballrooms.  This is an important meeting as the TPP is planning on making changes to the pension plan that will affect you especially if you a beginning teacher or within the first half of your teaching career!  If you are in your last 5 years of teaching, the plan doesn't take effect until January 1, 2018 and will have little impact on your retirement money.  This change not only will affect teachers but also principals, vice-principals, directors of instruction, assistant superintendents, and superintendents (basically anyone who has contributed to the TPP at any time) so they will be invited to attend this meeting as well.  Posters will be given to staff reps on Tuesday, Sept. 15th.

It is recommended by the BCTF that members download and read two important support materials prior to the consultation meeting:

·       - 2015 Pension Plan Consultation  There is lots of information on this webpage, including the link below. 

·       - chart for options A to E
