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!
