    Our Teamcare deductible has gone up 400% from the 2013-2018 Contract. $100 ded. for individual to now $500. And $200 up to $1000 now for families. That takes a nice chunk of a 4 year part timer's who only works 17 hours per week wage increases away.

    Way To Go Hoffa Slapdicks.

    Meanwhile our Short Term Disability remains at $500 max???

    And On the job Injuries continue to be on the rise. As do disability claims. Many employees are too scared of UPS retaliation to state their injury occured on the job and just take the no retribution disability claim.


    Who cares what our freinds who don't work for UPS pay for benefits. It is irrelevant. The comp and disability injury percentages at UPS dwarf almost all other companies.

    And Teamcare's Plan assets increased $725,041,486. Up 725 Million $. from 2017 to 2018.

    There is absoulutly no reason we should be paying any deductible.

    If Browned Out is a TDU Puke then there won't be any true facts, just hype.

    I voted against both the Master and my regional supplement. I also advocated the members in my local and nearby locals do the same and took time off work to do so.

    You make a good point about the deductible and higher out of pocket expenses under TeamCare vs the old company plan being more of a burden on our PT members. Short Term Disability's cap should be increased and long-term (5+ year) PT'ers should be eligible for LTD as FT'ers are.

    That being said, we do not have a $1,000 family deductible under TeamCare. We have a $1,000 for single $2,000 for family MAXIMUM OUT OF POCKET, which is entirely different than a deductible.

    Is that new, old, or unchanged?

    I believe it’s open enrollment for Obamacare. You’re welcome.

    This is what is was from OLD contract... I am unaware of any changes to health care.
    The last year of the contract Part Time was caught up (pay more) to FT insurance.
    So as a PTer I have my Co pay, $100/$200 Deductible (might be a little off) and $1,000 / $2,000 Max out of packet per year...

    It seems that your information is incorrect and even if they were you only work 17 hours a week and you are complaining that the benefits your family receives for this aren't good enough?

    That's what it was and what it still is, so unchanged.

    This is what it was, and what it still is. This is the U1 plan, but the U2 is identical.

    I was hopeful to eliminate the deductible, but no go.

    The deductible was backloaded/introduced at the end of the 2013-2018 agreement.

    I think the maximum out of pocket numbers have always existed as part of the benefit package but am not 100% sure on that.

    This is Currently 100% correct. Thanks for sharing and digging it up. Yes the Deductible was added this last year of the contract for Part Timers.

    What scares me, is since it is Union controlled and NOT in the contract, it could change at any time....

    I’d rather it not be as responsibility for any plan changes would be clear. None of that leadership pulling down its pants for the Company and then pointing fingers stuff when cuts come.

    Just got the 2019 Teamcare Plan Benefits.

    No change in deductible or out of pocket expenses.
