Media Advisory: President of National Public Service Union PIPSC to Attend Tonight's N.-B. Pension Coalition Public Meeting

FREDERICTON, NEW BRUNSWICK--(Marketwired - Sept. 25, 2013) - Gary Corbett, President and CEO of the Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada (PIPSC) will attend the public meeting of the N.-B. Pension Coalition tonight at the Fredericton Motor Inn.

Since the fall of 2012, as one of the unions representing New Brunswick's public service employees, PIPSC has been invited to regular meetings with the task force established by the provincial government to implement a Shared Risk Pension Plan intended to replace the current pension plan managed under its Public Service Superannuation Act (PSSA). While PIPSC has been an active participant in the work of the task force, the union considers its results to be unacceptable, as explained in the Professional Institute's statement issued last week on September 18(http://www.pipsc.ca/portal/page/portal/website/issues/pensioninfo/pen_main/news/09182013).

Event: Union President at NB Pension Coalition public meeting
Location: Fredericton Motor Inn, at 315 Regent St, Fredericton, NB
Date: Wednesday, September 25, 2013
Time: 7:00 p.m. ADT
Official: Gary Corbett, PIPSC President and CEO
