Chapter 23 : Pension plan
Postdoctoral fellows who are eligible shall have access to the Régime complémentaire de retraite de l’Université (RCRUL), the University’s supplementary pension plan.
Postdoctoral fellows make up a distinct group. The employer contribution is set at 8%, while that of postdoctoral fellows is 7.6%. The employer’s contribution includes the Employer’s share in the payment of all administration fees.
As a separate group, postdoctoral fellows are represented on the pension parity committee in accordance with the terms and conditions set out in the plan’s by-laws.
Upon signing of the agreement, the Employer shall take the necessary steps to ensure that the RCRUL by‑laws permit postdoctoral fellows to make contributions up to the December 31 that follows their 69th birthday and for the Employer to make the associated employer contribution. This amendment shall be retroactive to the date on which the collective agreement was signed. The Employer agrees that it will raise the age at which postdoctoral fellows’ contributions to the RCRUL cease if it were to be increased above 69 years for members of another union contributing to the same plan.
