The HRM Pension Committee (the 'Committee') is tasked with the overall governance of the Plan as well as ensuring that the Plan is able to deliver its benefit promise to members. The Committee is structured such that both employee and management groups have equal representation during decision-making processes.
The Committee consists of twelve voting members. Five of the voting members are union representatives and another five are appointed by HRM management. A retired member and a representative from the Non-Union Municipal Employees Association (NUMEA) make up the remainder of the voting members of the Committee.
The five employee unions represented on the Committee with voting members include:
- International Association of Firefighters, Local 268 (IAFF)
- Canadian Union of Public Employees, Local 108 (CUPE)
- Nova Scotia Union of Public and Private Employees, Local 13 (NSUPE)
- Halifax Regional Police Association (HRPA)
- Amalgamated Transit Union, Local 508 (ATU)
