The information provided has been prepared to provide you with information regarding the LIUNA Local 493 Scholarship Plan and includes all changes an/or additions up to and including July 1, 2022.
This information is for your reference. Please read it carefully and keep it for future use. These benefits are not insured but are payable from the funds of the LIUNA Local 493 Scholarship Trust Fund (Scholarship Plan). LiUNA Local 493 Benefit Services will administer all benefit payments.
The trustees hope and expect to continue the scholarship plan indefinitely. These will be amended as and when circumstances require or permit, and terminated in the event that the Collective Agreements no longer require contributions.
Whereas there will doubtless be changes in the future, these changes will be posted on the plan’s website http://www.local493.com/benefits.
The Labourers’ Local 493 Scholarship Trust Fund was started when LIUNA Local 493 negotiated the first Collective Agreement requiring Employer Contributions to the Trust Fund.
The purpose of the Labourers’ Local 493 Scholarship Trust Fund is to provide financial assistance to defray the cost of attending a post-secondary school educational course which, if successfully completed, will assist the student in obtaining, maintaining, or upgrading meaningful employment.
The purpose of this page is to give you a summary of how and when you will be covered by the Scholarship Plan, the benefits of the plan, and when termination occurs.
