Effective joint governance

Through their representatives on the Plan’s governing bodies – the Sponsors’ Committee and the Board of Trustees – members and employers have an equal say in, and share the risks of, Plan decisions. This joint governance structure is recognized as a model for success in keeping defined benefit pension plans sustainable.
