Your Pension

Your defined benefit pension is something to be proud of. It’s a hard-won benefit and tangible example of how union membership gives workers an advantage when safeguarding their security and standard of living as we age.

Current information regarding your pension can be found at the links below.

Members who worked for health employers covered by the Nurses’ Bargaining Association collective agreement should belong to the Municipal Pension Plan or the Public Service Pension Plan.

For information on how those pension funds are invested, consult the BC Investment Management Corporation

Nurses' Pension Governance Review

During Nurses' Bargaining Association (NBA) 2019-2022 contract negotiations, BCNU negotiated a nurses' pension governance review process to study important options for the future of members' pensions. This process has concluded, and it has been determined that having the NBA nurse pension remain within the Municipal Pension Plan as-is, without any changes, affords the most protection and long-term assurance to members. See our Nov. 9 bulletin for more details.
