CPP: A Step in the Right Direction

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - March 28, 2006) - Canadian Labour Congress President Ken Georgetti is very pleased at the news that the CPP Investment Board has taken a step towards a more ethical investment of Canadians' retirement savings.

"Canadians want their money invested in ways that improve our standard of living without harming the environment or supporting labour practices that violate human rights. Joining the Enhanced Analytics Initiative is a positive step in the right direction. The last thing Canadians want is for their own pension savings to be used to undermine the rights or the health of working families."

The Canadian Labour Congress, the national voice of the labour movement, represents 3 million Canadian workers. The CLC brings together Canada's national and international unions along with the provincial and territorial federations of labour and 137 district labour councils. Web site: www.canadianlabour.ca
