Dear Retired Colleagues,
We were pleased to see so many of you attend UTFA’s Annual Retiree Reception on May 17th.
As promised, we write to share documents referenced during the session:
- The slide presentation for the portion of the meeting facilitated by UTFA’s leadership;
- The slide presentation from our keynote speaker, Uahikea Maile, Assistant Professor, Indigenous Politics and founder of the Ziibiing Lab;
- Benefit Improvements: Equal for ‘Active and Retirees’ (contains chart of current benefits); and
- Information on Travel Medical Benefits, contained in the downloadable GSC Benefits Booklet, the second link in the Faculty & Librarians paragraph, found here.
Also, to follow up on a question posed at the reception, we have received confirmation from the U of T Manager, Benefits and Pensions, that the option to maintain benefits coverage continues for spouses upon the death of a retiree (subject to the payment of premiums). If you have further questions, please contact the University’s HR Service Centre.
Finally, the Ziibiing Lab’s purpose is to support Indigenous peoples, thought, and movements. Donations provided to the Ziibiing Lab play an important role in advancing global Indigenous politics research and activities.
