The Association of Rio Tinto Alcan Retirees Members of the Rio Tinto Alcan Pension Plan (RTAPP)—also known as the RCRA—is a non-profit organization founded in August 2001. Its mission is to protect the heritage and defend the rights and interests of Rio Tinto Alcan (RTA) retirees members of the Pension Plan (RTAPP).
There are around 6,900 retired members of this pension plan living across Canada and around the world, including 3,300 in Quebec. Of them, close to 1,700 are members in good standing of the RCRA, 75% of whom live in Quebec.
The RCRA represents former management and other former non-unionized employees retired from Rio Tinto Alcan.
The RCRA also works to maintain pensioners’ buying power and obtain the 100% indexation of pensions to the cost of living and to catch up on the difference between the annual rate of inflation and the pension indexation obtained since 2001 as well as monitoring its members’ group health insurance coverage.
In addition to keeping an eye on topics of interest to its members and the growth of the Pension Plan (RTAPP), the RCRA is currently focused on the work being done by the Government of Quebec’s advisory committee tasked with examining private-sector pension plans otherwise known as C-57.
The RCRA has kindly shared their submissions, both the original version in French, and
