On June 25, 2015, Co-op Atlantic, Co-op Energy Ltd., and C A Realty Ltd . (“Co-op Atlantic”) were granted protection from their creditors under the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act (“CCAA”) pursuant to an Order of the Court of Queen’s Bench of New Brunswick.
The Co-op Atlantic Employees’ Pension Plan is being wound up in a significantly underfunded state. Koskie Minsky LLP has been retained by a large group of salaried retirees, who are facing a 32% reduction to their pension entitlements. This group has instructed Koskie Minsky LLP to seek appointment as Representative Counsel to all salaried employees and retirees of Co-op Atlantic.
On June 15th, 2016 we sent a letter to the lawyers for the company and the monitor notifying of our intention to seek a representation order from the court, as well as funding for the retirees’ legal costs from the estate.
