Re:        Pension Lawsuit

I am pleased to report that the Court of Queen’s Bench ruled in favour of the MTS Pension Plan members by requiring MTS Allstream to return to the plaintiffs what now amounts to approximately $100 million dollars, and also governance of how these funds will be utilized.

This ruling represents a vindication of our rightful claim to the initial surplus.  Click here to read a brief summary of Justice Bryk’s decision.

The full 170 page judgement will be posted on the TEAM website as soon as the file is ready.
