Hi and welcome to Just Answer!
Your employer's contribution into your retirement fund generally is not included into your taxable income - so there is no need to deduct it again.
If for whatever reason these contributions were included into your taxable income - that will be your basis in the retirement fund.
When you start receiving your pension - it generally is taxable, but if you have a basis (contributions made with after tax funds) - that amount is recovered tax free.
Let me know if you need any help with reporting.

Political contributions may not deducted.
If you pay for training - these expenses may be deducted as educational expenses. Depending on your situation - different educational credit or deduction may be used.
