Can I retire during a strike or lockout?

Answer

Yes, however the retirement processing is subject to the information provided to the Plan by your employer. Should you wish to retire while on strike you should contact the CAAT Pension Plan. You can contact them at 416-673-9000 or (toll-free) 1-866-350-2228.

Please note that the employer must confirm the date you retire and provide the Plan with year-to-date financial information in order for the Plan to proceed with the retirement calculation. Therefore, the payment of your pension may be delayed if this information is not provided by your employer.
