CUPE’s response to banning mandatory retirement

Mandatory retirement is the wrong issue. Most workers would prefer to retire earlier, not later.

However if you don't have a pension, no matter what the law says, you will have to keep working when you hit 65.

CUPE wants real retirement choices for older workers, to allow them to retire in dignity and security and to make room for younger workers.

CUPE is also concerned that efforts to repeal mandatory retirement laws, as in Ontario, will make it harder for all workers to retire.
