RESOLUTIONS - 2003

SUBJECT: Healthcare transfer funds from the Federal Government
WHEREAS: The Romanow Report recommends that health care funds transferred from the Federal Government should be used exclusively for health care purposes
WHEREAS: Seniors find it increasingly difficult to deal with the rising cost of health care
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED: that the Provincial Executive of the NSGREA recommend that the Provincial Government set up a monitoring committee to ensure that health care transferred funds are used exclusively for health care purposes

SUBJECT: Dental Plan
WHEREAS: The cost of dental care continues to rise
WHEREAS: A provincial election has been called for 2003
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED: that the provincial executive not only continues to pressure whichever government happens to be in power to provide all retirees with an affordable dental plan, but also meets with representatives (leaders) of the opposition parties re same

SUBJECT: Pensions - lump sum increase
WHEREAS: A number of government retirees whose provincial government pension income is $20,000 or less, find it increasingly difficult to meet rising everyday living expenses
WHEREAS: In 1986, to assist low income employees, the government provided all employees with a lump sum payment of $1300 instead of the usual percentage cost of living increase
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED: that the Provincial Executive of the NSGREA negotiate with the government to provide all pensioners with a one time only lump sum increase instead of a percentage cost of living increase, so as not to increase the income gap of high and low income pensioners
