New March 1, 2018 transition date
Moving all eligible CUPE members in the province into the CUPE Education Workers’ Benefits Trust (CUPE EWBT) is a major undertaking, involving many stakeholders and moving parts. While we’ve made great progress to date, there have been some obstacles to overcome. To date, a significant number of Boards have still not provided final data to OTIP, our new plan administrator.
With that in mind, our new transition date is March 1, 2018. We believe extending the timeline is important to help ensure a smooth transition – and a more positive experience for our members.
