Current retiree Healthcare
Published by Dave Skotarczyk [Dave Skotarczyk] on 2013/2/7 (673 reads)
AT&T refused to negotiate current retiree health care in this round of bargaining. Under the law ( the National Labor Relations Act) only future retiree health care is a mandatory subject for bargaining. Current retiree health is called a permissive subject for bargaining.

Our Union made several suggestions to AT&T about current retiree health care and the company did make some movements, nowhere near where we wanted to be. The Company set the monthly contributions and co pays for 2013. With the hope that our Government will do something to help on this issue we made an agreement to have talks near the end of 2013 about current retiree health care. There is no guaranty that we will be successful.

Monthly contribution for pre Medicare Retirees will be $75/$221/$271 with out of pocket maximums changing slightly.
Post Medicare will have a small monthly contribution of $10/$20
The alternative regional plan still does not have monthly contributions however Out of pocket maximums and co pays went up significantly.

Tale of Two Countries Video

Canadian members of CWA talk about their country's health care system and how it compares with the costly system in the United States in a video that the Canadian Media Guild produced for last year's CWA convention in Toronto.

In the video and in other interviews, Canadians indicate they don't understand why Americans cling to a staggeringly expensive system that leaves so many people without health care.

For more information, and to find out how you can make a difference, visit www.healthcarevoices.org/canada. The Health Care Voices website features hundreds of stories, ideas and concerns of CWA members and their families as part of the union's fight for health care reform in the United States.
