Just having it is not enough: Labour's voice on pension boards
Pension monies are the deferred compensation of employees, and with increased attention to good governance and corporate ethics and responsibility it makes sense to have employee representatives involved in decisions about the investment of those monies. The Certified General Accountants of Canada argue that a pension advisory committee comprising designates of plan members and the employer should be the minimum standard in pension governance (CGA-Canada, 2004).
