Retirement Security

With nearly two out of three workers without a workplace pension plan, it's time to support making retirement security a priority in Ontario.

Too few Ontarians have an adequate workplace pension plan. For working women it's even worse. Women are twice as likely as men to spend their retirement years living in poverty.

"Those who oppose strengthening retirement security will find SEIU Healthcare on the other side fighting for workers and their families."

A good economy and strengthened pensions are not incompatible. As CPP (Canadian Pension Plan) premiums rose in the 1990s, unemployment fell.

"Too many workers are without a workplace pension plan. This is bad for their future and its bad for the strength of our economy in the years ahead," concluded Stewart.
