Given the importance and potential sensitivity of the Review, the Board has decided to extend its standard timelines for decision-making – to allow for additional analysis and direct stakeholder engagement. The Board will also decide the timeline for any changes. There will be no changes implemented before the end of 2018, and we don’t expect to see changes before 2021.Potential Plan changes, if any, will be posted after the June SC Board meeting, rather than May. The final vote will take place in November, following broader stakeholder outreach and consultation with employers, unions and members.
Next step: engagement and consultation
In the coming weeks, you will be invited to participate in an employer forum on July 24. This is your opportunity to hear about the Comprehensive Plan Review first-hand, and to share your thoughts, insights and ideas.
This fall, we will be working with an independent third party to conduct focus groups that will involve a broad cross-section of our members. Member consultation on the potential Plan design updates will further inform Board Directors as they consider these options.
While focus group participation may be limited, all members will be invited to share their thoughts and questions during planned webcasts, online at omerssc.com, and by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We would appreciate your help
To help us manage this extremely important initiative, we ask that you:
- participate in one of the upcoming employer forums to learn first-hand about the Comprehensive Plan Review;
- encourage your members/employees to participate in future webcasts and focus groups;
- direct members to the SC website for more information and updates.
We have included a copy of the upcoming member bulletin and a link to an informational video for your consideration. We’ve also included a link with answers to some anticipated member questions.
