Important layoffs at Moosehead Breweries
Moosehead Breweries has announced the loss of an important contract, subsequently, the layoffs of 70 employees at the production plant in Saint John.
The New Brunswick Union is saddened by these important layoffs and the impact it will have on Local 362.
“The members of Local 362 are dedicated to their work and the Union’s main goal throughout this process is to work diligently with the employer to minimize the impact on our members and their families,” said NBU’s President, Susie Proulx-Daigle.
“We understand that layoffs are a very stressful situation for any member, and these affected members can be assured that our labour relations officers will work diligently with them and the employer to assure proper union representation, and to make sure the collective agreements are respected,”
The layoffs will take effect in June 2015.

FREDERICTON – The Joint Board of Trustees for the Public Service Shared Risk Plan has approved a full cost of living increase of 1.43 per cent for all members, which includes more than 30,000 active and retired plan members.
The announcement was made by the chair of the joint trust board Marilyn Quinn after consideration of the pension plan's financial position.
“As recently communicated to all members of the Public Service Shared Risk Plan, the pension plan passed the risk management tests under its funding policy,” Quinn said. “We are pleased to announce that this has enabled the full cost of living increase for 2014 to be provided to members.”
The annual cost of living increase is based on the increase in the average of the Consumer Price Index (Canada) for the 12 month period ending the preceding June. It will be applied on Jan. 1, 2015.
Active members will have the increase applied to the benefit that they have earned up to Dec. 31, 2013. Retirees will have this amount applied to their monthly pension benefit.
As with past practice, retirees will receive notification in December outlining the increase they will receive in their monthly benefit starting in January, 2015.
