All CUPE members work under the protection of a collective agreement called a collective agreement. Your local union negotiates the terms of the agreement. Elected local union leaders also work with the employer to resolve workplace issues. If you want a copy of your collective agreement on paper, talk to your trustee. If you don`t know who your administrator is or how to contact your office, contact the CUPE office near you. Local 50, a strong and democratic union, supports improving the quality of life of Victoria workers by giving a strong voice – a collective voice – in the workplace. If you have questions about your rights in the workplace, the best person you can talk to is your steward or local leader. You will know the details of your agreement. The earliest retirement age for most municipal employees is 55. Depending on the municipal pension plan, you can apply for a pension from the age of 55. However, if you retire before age 60 and you do not meet the minimum age plus the service requirements subject to contributions, your pension will be reduced.

(18.13 Retirement) The city pays a worker who retires after reaching the minimum retirement age set out in the B.C. municipal pension plan, a sum of money equal to the basic salary of one calendar month at the worker`s retirement rate. The third Tuesday in January, March, May, September, October and November are held each year six (6) general meetings. The executive determines the time and place of these meetings. No session lasts more than two and a half hours (2 1/2), unless approved by two-thirds (2/3) of those present with a two-thirds majority. There are two raffle prizes at all general meetings, one for $20 and one for $30. Refreshments must be provided. The Canada Superannuation (CPP) offers a monthly stipend to eligible Canadians.
