On April 27, 2016, Chief Justice David Smith ruled that Pension Coalition NB could bring it's motion for Representation Order in Fredericton, on July 12, 2016. That motion will seek to confirm that the Coalition represents the interests of all 13,700 pensioners affected by the introduction of the new Shared Risk Pension Plan, which replaced our former PSSA plan. The judge also left open the possibility of a similar motion for a representation order to be brought by the Levesque case lawyer at a subsequent date.
