Joe Nunes:

Good: Addressing both the 3:1 funding imbalance and the unreasonable cost of having an officer work lots of overtime right before retirement.

Bad: If including overtime in pensionable earnings is part of the collective agreement then it is acting in bad faith to try and unilaterally change the deal.

Melvin:

Given that the Canada Revenue Agency defines “pensionable earnings” nation-wide, does the City of Winnipeg have any authority to do anything?

Also, since CPP maxes out at around $60,000 of annual income, would any changes by the City have any effect on higher-wage police officers?
