Arthurs' Commission Report on Pensions Needs Close Study Says Ontario Federation of Labour

"The labour movement will be carefully studying and fully
participating in the discussions and review of the Ontario Expert Commission
on Pensions Report that was released today," said OFL president Wayne

"The Report's recommendations are complex and interdependent and deserve
serious consideration by government. The current crisis in financial markets
should not drive long-term reform efforts.

"While we assess the Report the labour movement will be keeping two
priorities in mind - strong regulation to enhance security for those with
defined pension plans and the need to expand pension plan coverage for those
without," Samuelson said.
