The pandemic took a toll on all workers - especially those in hard-hit industries.  Many workers had to access temporary COVID relief benefits, and then transitioned to EI. This conference is especially important if you or any of the members your represent were laid off during the pandemic. You will learn:

  • Learn about EI Rules, Policies and Practices from Service Canada Representatives
  • Learn about Unifor’s campaign to make permanent EI changes

Important questions will be answered, including:

  • How do I apply for EI and what are EI special benefits?
  • How can I appeal an EI decision?
  • What are the recent changes to EI?

If you or any of your members are approaching retirement, it is vital that you know more about the Canada Pension Plan, this conference provides the perfect opportunity to understand how CPP works and what your retirement pension will look like and why. 

Learn the answers to these questions and more:
