New pension plan for small unions OTTAWA (CP) Small union locals will be encouraged in coming months to sign up their employers for a new national pension plan now being launched by the Canadian Labor Congress. The plan, known as the Can- a d a -W i d e Industrial Pension Plan or CWIPP, follows discus- sions al the 1968 congress con- vention. While open to all CLC affili- a'es, it is aimed at union locals with less than 200 members which nov: have no pension ar- rangements. In keeping with CLC principle that pension plans achieved through collective bargaining represent a form of deferred earnings, employers are to pay the full share of contributions for each worker taking part in the plan. The size of contributions and the eventual benefits are to be establisheu at the bargaining table by the individual locals and their employers. CLC official Gordon Mc- Caffery said in an interview Monday it is expected that lo- cals wishing In participate in the plan will have to wait until current contracts expire before tubing up the matter with their employers. BENEFITS BIG UNIOW5 Mr, McCaffery said tho first unions likely to benefit from the plan will be three of the biggest in (he country, the United Auto Workers. Unilcd Steel Workers mid the Canadian Food and Al- lird Workers. All three repre- sent workers in numerous small industries and o.fticcs as well ns in major industrial establish- ments, The plan is being adminis- tered by Quebec Trust with union and employer representa- tives acting as directors. The Canadian Manufacturers' Asso- ciation was asked to participate on the board, Mr. McCaffery said, but declined on grounds it did not wish to appear to be en- dorsing pension plans as a standard condition of employ- ment in all industries. In a statement, congress Sec- retary-Treasurer William Dodge said the "pooling of the pension funds of many small operations vail enable CWIPP to make in- vestment earnings of the kind normally available only to very large organizations." Contributions to the plan are to be invested in the province of the participating industry.
