    The new health plan covers UPS Teamsters in much of the West and in New Jersey Local 177. Some members have expressed concern about the fact that eligibility will be determined on a weekly basis (see page 2 of the summary) instead of monthly. This means that if you are off work for one full week due to being injured off the job or other uncompensated reasons, you will temporarily lose coverage.

    In other words if you're out with your kids kicking a ball around and you trip and sprain your ankle and have to miss a week of work without pay, you loose medical coverage.

    We can thank Andy "the numbskull" Marshall for this screw-up!

    People are so mis-informed. I've missed more than a week on a few occasions with union healthcare and haven't skipped a beat on coverage.
     
  6. we get 26 weeks in the central region. Just saying.

    govols019 You smell that?

    Please explain how what he posted is not true. It is also true in the Southern Region unless, of course, you say it isn't.

    Los Angeles Local 396 has an election this October and guess what guys? This was the local that voted overwhelming No and blamed Ron H. Now H is claiming it was his fault and that it was Hoffa and hall. Apparently to save his job he's telling the members that he is no longer supporting them. But he sure receives another salary from the IBT for being international VP. With this news just leaking out more questions are sure to loom.

    It would be stellar to see a SoCal local be overtaken by an anti Hoffa slate.

    Did i read this part right you won't be covered if you get hurt off the job

    ( I copy this exactly from the site )
    There are certain instances where you will not be covered such as if you request time off without pay , get injured off the job , ETC.

    "The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provides certain employees with up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave per year. It also requires that their group health benefits be maintained during the leave."

    You are a shallow man to use this transition to talk crap and use for political gain. Why would you try to spread fear to brothers and sisters instead of helping members get answers?

    It has always been that way here. You must work at least one day to have coverage for that week. I have had them code me wrong for vacation and sure enough I get a letter from TEAMCARE asking if I want to pay for COBRA. Granted this comes four weeks or so down the road when coverage started back. I have to have them call payroll to back pay coverage for that week as if any Dr. bills submitted for that week would have been denied for no coverage.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    We have to work 36 days in a quarter to get coverage for the following quarter.

    I didn't have to use FMLA under the last contract. Why can't you admit this health care is inferior to what we had?

    Good point! Do we now have to file for FMLA every time we take time off work? Like an off-the-job injury or request off?

    That sucks!

    Your options are the same as always..... FMLA, Disability or if short term like a week you could use a sick day to get a punch. Just make sure it's covered. What really sucks is how your TDU posts are all bitchy negative but fail to explain to members how to keep their coverage.

    So those of us that play softball in an adult league should consider quitting. Because God forgive I'm turning second and I sprain my ankle and need a week to recover because it's happened before.

    Can you Hoffa lick azzes please admit our healthcare is garbage? You should have seen the BA this morning saying they didn't support this and that's why Ron H is backing Rome A in 2016...cowards!

    Because the federal law covers him. Also if you are off and file for non work related illness/injury he is covered.
