LETTER #2 – PENSIONABLE SERVICE DURING A LEGAL WORK STOPPAGE
January 30, 2020
Mr. Dean Ingram
Newfoundland and Labrador Teachers’ Association
3 Kenmount Road
St. John’s, NL
Dear Mr. Ingram:
In any case where pensionable service is lost due to a legal work stoppage, regulations will be passed to allow a teacher so affected to purchase an amount of pensionable service equal to the amount so lost. Such service shall be purchased at twice the normal contribution rates at the salary in effect at the time of the work stoppage and within three months of the termination of the work stoppage.
Where the loss of salary during a work stoppage would normally affect a teacher’s pensionable salary, the teacher’s pensionable salary shall be calculated as if there were no loss of salary.
This policy will be effective from September 1, 1985.
Further, effective January 30, 2020, it is agreed that all teachers who have lost pensionable service due to a past legal work stoppage will be allowed an opportunity to purchase an amount of pensionable service equal to the amount so lost. Such service shall be purchased in accordance with the provisions of this letter and not later than April 30, 2020.
