Dave Bush speaks with Kevin Skerrett, a pension researcher with the Canadian Union of Public Employees. Kevin recently helped organize the workshops series Pension Funds, Unions, and Working Class Strategies. The series looked at the changing nature of pensions in Canadian society and how union strategies have fared in approaching issues such as pension coverage and progressive investment. The workshop also tried to address possible progressive strategies unions should engage in when approaching the pension issue.[audio:https://www.rankandfile.ca/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/KevinPensions.mp3|titles=:Kevin Skerrett interview]
