A Local 15 member who retired in April was frustrated with slow replies about his pension options under the former Viterra Pension Plan for GSU members.
After three months of waiting, the member contacted GSU and general secretary Hugh Wagner raised the delays with Nutrien HR. The response from HR was very prompt, and although there were still some hurdles to overcome, the retired GSU member received the information he required. He has since selected his pension options.
Don’t hesitate to contact your staff rep if you have a problem.
They may not have magic wands, but often your union rep can make things happen.
