    I just got my card in the mail. I'm a PT package handler. Based on what I've read online its "affordable" which is good. Do I get something taken out of my check on a monthly basis or? This is the first job I've had that offered insurance so I don't really know what I'm doing.
  2. No you don't have to pay for it.

    I'm not sure if it is more appropriate to reply on this discussion or start a new one. I have a similar question though... Is it possible to pay out of pocket for the insurance prior to the 9 month requirement?

    We wouldn’t have our health plan the way it is without the Union.

    There is no provision for that in the contract.

    To give you a general idea what retirees have to pay to continue their Union backed health plan, mine will cost $707 a month for 2020. At the rate it has been going up in the last few years, you can expect to be paying thousands of $ a month by the time you retire.

  12. They shouldn't be allowed to raise retiree healthcare once you retire.

    That is actually a very good question and should be an option.

    Perhaps that should be changed.

    We have essentially just begun the clock on the best contract ever. See you in four years.
