Whitehorse Municipal Workers - Local Y046

DBplus Pension Info for members of Local Y046:

Congratulations to Local Y046 Whitehorse Municipal Employees on successfully negotiating a defined benefit pension plan for city employees! 

October 28, 2022:

During the last round of bargaining, the union was able to negotiate a move from the Sunlife RRSP plan to a defined benefit plan, CAAT*. The City is on track to join the CAAT Pension Plan under the DBplus plan on December 14, 2022.

*It's important to note that you do not need to make a decision right away on your RRSPs. They will remain with Sunlife until you retire or when you choose to move them to the pension plan.

CITY LOCALS MERGE TO CREATE LOCAL Y046

YEU/PSAC Local Y046, Whitehorse Municipal Workers is the newly combined local for all City of Whitehorse workers previously represented by Local Y022 (Whitehorse Transit) and Local Y023 (City of Whitehorse). 

This decision was reached following many discussions between the two Locals and their Executive members and was formalized in meetings in early June of 2021. 

A few key points:

  • All members of Locals Y022 and Y023 now belong to Local Y046, Whitehorse Municipal Employees
  • Locals Y022 and Y023 will cease to exist independently
  • Members retain their existing PSAC Union Member ID number
  • Existing Collective Agreements remain in effect, and both bargaining units will be maintained.

o   Whitehorse Transit Workers

o   Whitehorse General Workers

  • All existing Shop Stewards will continue to serve the combined Local, and we will try to assign Stewards to similar or nearby work units. 
  • We are still looking for more Shop Stewards and a Chief Shop Steward – Whitehorse General Workers
  • Our local has also put out a call for members to join the Health & Safety Committee and Job Evaluation Team where there are vacancies or room for more involvement from union members.
