Event Details

June 14, 2023
11:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Online Webinar

Featuring: Natasha Monkman


As we continue to emerge from the pandemic, the economic environment has created—and continues to create—many challenges for pensions and employee benefits. The past year has seen various developments in jurisprudence and legislation responding to these challenges. At the same time, employers have sought to contain and reduce costs, while unions look to preserve and improve benefits. This symposium will explore these developments, trends and other factors impacting pensions in collective bargaining, and how the economy has affected plan administration.

Hicks Morley’s Natasha Monkman will be speaking on a panel during an afternoon session titled, “Pensions in Collective Bargaining: Influences and Trends.” In this session, the expert panel of speakers will examine—from both sides of the table—the trends and other factors impacting pensions in collective bargaining including insolvency, consolidation and mergers, joint governance and Charter challenges.
