Early Retirement Incentive Program 2020

Did you know that the Early Retirement Incentive Plan is part of our Collective Agreement? The guiding principles for ERIP are in Appendix B on page 202 of the CA. This year’s information regarding the actual amounts available to teachers retiring in June is now available in schools, along with a handy reference that includes guidelines for eligibility and the process. If you are between the ages of 55 and 64, have worked with the VSB for 10 years and are considering retiring this June, you should ask your principal or staff rep for the ERIP information package.

2020 – 2021 Retirement Dinner

We had planned to hold this year’s Retirement Dinner on Monday, June 22, 2020.  But due to concerns and uncertainty connected to the COVID-19 virus, we have rescheduled.  The new date for the next Retirement Dinner is Monday, June 21, 2021 at the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club.  Invitations will be mailed closer to the date.
