This class proceeding concerns a settlement for trust employees at the University of Calgary for all Pre-2009 pension and all other employment-related claims.
The class consists of all persons who worked as a “Trust Employee” at the University of Calgary on or prior to December 31, 2008 for any period or lengths of time including on a full-time, part-time, term, occasional, temporary or other basis (the “Class Members”).On June 4, 2015, the Court certified the above-noted Action as a class proceeding and appointed Linda Marchuk, Daniel Lang and Cathy Mac-Naughton as class Representative Plaintiffs. Koskie Minsky LLP is counsel to the Class Members (“Class Counsel”). The Court also approved this settlement and authorized this Notice.
Please note that, it is no longer possible to submit a claim as the deadline for submissions (November 4, 2015) has passed.
The University of Calgary’s Trust Settlement Team is currently working through the steps outlined in the Settlement Agreement. All cash payments for all groups (including former employees) are scheduled on the April 25th, 2016 pay date. For Group 1 claimants who chose service purchase with payroll deductions, the payroll deductions will also begin on the April 25th, 2016 pay.
For a small number of claims, payments will be made at a later date due to missing information. These claimants have been contacted individually prior to April 25 with details on what information is missing and must be provided before payments can be made.
Group 1 pool was sufficient to cover all Group 1 claims. There was no proration of Group 1 claim amounts. Under the terms of the Settlement Agreement, any funds left in the Group 1 pool after finalization of all Group 1 claim amounts were transferred to Group 2 pool.
The Group 2 pool, after transfer of funds remaining in Group 1 pool, was not sufficient to cover all eligible Group 2 claims. As a result and in accordance with the Settlement Agreement, all Group 2 claim amounts were multiplied by the factor of 0.921932. This pro rata reduction was applied to both Individual Settlement Amounts and the Pre-2007 Settlement Amounts prior to determining any applicable statutory deductions.
Group 3 pool was sufficient to cover all Group 3 claims. Thus, there was no proration of Group 3 claim amounts.
