The Benefit Committee's mandate is to push forward the benefit agenda put in place by the Board of BPG, and to ensure a link between BPG and Bell in order to address issues that are discriminatory or detrimental to members.
The Benefit Committee will keep the Board informed of current issues related to benefits and ensure that retirement-specified benefit entitlements (provided in the retirement package) are maintained. The Committee ensures that the services provided by Bell / Manulife / Morneau Sobecco are professional, of quality and respond to the needs of our members.
The Chapter Chairs are the single point of contact for members regarding any benefit related issues. The role of the Benefit Committee is to use the appeal process with Bell in any situation where the Chairs have been unsuccessful and request the issue be escalated to Bell, or where BPG believes that the members are being neglected or discriminated against.
