Health Plan Concessions
Management has said in their update that they did not ask for any language changes. In the final offer tabled to us on April 16/15 they deleted all references to our Health Plan Agreement, the Heath Plan Committee and any changes to the Health Plan would not require Union approval.
They propose a Group benefit Plan that is governed by themselves.
When they say no concessions, they mean for right now. We believe that this is the first step in eroding the benefits in our current plan as we know it. We fear that concessions could begin as early as this contract is ratified.
We CANNOT let this happen
