Unilateral modification to a pension plan
The class action seeks compensation for the bridge benefit that the class members lost as a result of Kraft Heinz’s illegal unilateral amendment of its pension plan.
On February 24 2020, Justice Suzanne Courchesne of the Superior Court authorized Mr. Yvon Milliard to institute a class action against Kraft Heinz for the loss of the bridge benefit.
We are now in the process of preparing for trial. This phase includes the filing of an originating application, the collection of documents, examinations for discovery, the identification of witnesses who will testify at the trial and the selection of documents to be put into evidence. Several of these steps have already been taken and we are progressing towards setting dates for the trial.
