Re: VRTIP Applications and Leaving Gifts
VRTIP Applications: TEAM is monitoring the progress of the voluntary departure program, and ask that if you have, or will be applying for the VRTIP, to click here and notify the TEAM office. Should you wish to discuss your options confidentially, call the office on 204-984-9470 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Leaving Gifts: TEAM has a longstanding practice of presenting members who are leaving MTS with a departure gift. If you or a colleague meet the below Board Policy criteria, email the office so a gift can be prepared and presentation or delivery arranged.
Board Policy #11: Gifts - Retirement or for Departing Members
On notification of a retirement or departure by the TEAM member concerned or a colleague, TEAM will present a gift to members in good standing who leave the Company at retirement or after 10 years membership in TEAM (excluding members terminated for just cause).
For members who are retiring, TEAM also covers the first year’s membership fee of the Telephone Retirees Association of Manitoba (TRAM). This organization provides support for the Retiree Pension Committee Representative and advocates on a number of issues on behalf of MTS retirees.
