A class action lawsuit has been certified against Noranda Inc. in regards to a dispute over the company's pension plan. The suit was filed on behalf of 950 non-union Noranda retirees and older staff members who allege that an employee's pension should be based on the 60 best earnings months of an employee's time with the company, including vacation pay, bonuses, stock options and other fringe benefits, however the company bases the pension calculation on average earnings for an employee's final 60 months with the company. The suit alleges that because the plan is unclear and open to different interpretations, it falls under the definition of an "adhesion contract," in which case under Quebec law, it should be interpreted against the party that drafted it.
