How to join SPP

Here are the steps to take if you’re a USW member and interested in securing your financial future with SPP.

Potential Members

  • Talk about SPP and its benefits with your co-workers and unit leaders at your regular meetings. Sharing our SPP booklet can help generate discussion and interest in joining the Plan. 
  • If you need more information about the Plan, work with your unit leaders and Staff Representative to contact SPP for more information or to set up a meeting.
  • Make sure SPP is included in your local bargaining surveys when your local decides what to include in your contract negotiations.

Unit Executives

  • Tell your USW Staff Representative that you want to talk about joining SPP and would like more information and details about the Plan. 
  • Ask your Staff Representative about setting up a meeting with Plan Trustees to further discuss the details of SPP and how your local could be a part of it.
  • Talk about SPP and its benefits to your fellow union members. Generate discussion and interest in joining the Steelworkers Pension Plan. 
  • Propose SPP in preparation for bargaining, i.e. bargaining surveys.

Bargaining Committees

  • Tell your USW Staff Representative that you would like to discuss joining SPP and would like more information and details about the Plan. 
  • As you prepare for bargaining, discuss with your Staff Representative the possibility of setting up a meeting with Plan Trustees to further discuss the details of SPP and how your local could be a part of it.
  •  If you are in bargaining and require immediate assistance regarding pension alternatives or options (such as the closing of a DB Plan or the introduction of a new Pension plan), contact SPP through your Staff Rep.
  • Propose and negotiate SPP with your employer into your Collective Agreement.
  • Make sure your employer signs a Participation Agreement with SPP.
