We also attended The Senate Committee on Energy and the Environment, also on Division 29 of Bill C-43. The link to the audio recording can be found here: http://senparlvu.parl.gc.ca/Guide.aspx?viewmode=4&categoryid=-1¤tdate=2014-11-18&languagecode=12298&eventid=12278
Attached are my speaking notes.
We want to see a seamless and successful transition of Canadian Nuclear Laboratories. By including the new hires post share transfer in the PSSA 3-year transitional coverage, it keeps all employees on a level playing field, and will afford us the best opportunity to negotiate a pension plan to the satisfaction of everyone.
