If she is not working in the trade or industry then the union pension has to be reinstated. The union, under the union protectionism clause, has a right to stop pension payments for as long as the retiree works in the trade protected by the union no matter where they work. Upon retirement and proof they are no longer working in the trade, the pension must be reinstated in accordance with the terms in her pension plan description. So she needs to review her pension plan description to see when the pension payments must be reinstated.
