The Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan (HOOPP) has announced that all part-time and other non‑full‑time employees will have the option of joining HOOPP starting October 1, 2015. There will be no waiting period.
The announcement comes as part of HOOPP’s part-time and other non-full-time employee program, We’re In. Are you? Launched on August 19, the initiative is a comprehensive educational program created specifically for part-time and other non-full-time employees that demonstrates the benefits of joining HOOPP.
By visiting the HOOPP website, employees can find out more about the benefits of joining the plan. They will be linked to a brochure and be able to sign up for webcasts.
Employees who are interested in joining the plan should contact their human resources department.
OPSEU local presidents in HOOPP are encouraged to make their part-time and other non-full-time members aware of the possibility of joining the plan as of October 1. You may consider distributing brochures, arranging for a HOOPP representative to attend group presentations and promoting enrolment in HOOPP through newsletters, websites and social media.
To order printed program materials, such as brochures and posters, use the order form available on HOOPP's website.
