Teamsters 117, as a member of the Coalition of State Employee Unions, has achieved a tentative agreement with the State over your health care benefits for the 2023-2025 biennium.

The agreement maintains the status quo on your premium share from the previous biennium. Under the proposal, your employer will continue to contribute 85% of the monthly premium for the self-insured Uniform Medical Plan (UMP) Classic for members, while members will contribute 15%.

The agreement increases flexible spending account (FSA) eligibility of $250 paid for by the employer to members with a full-time equivalent base salary of $60,000 or less.

You can view a PDF of the redlined tentative agreement here.

Next week, we will be holding Zoom meetings to discuss the details of the agreement on Thursday, September 22 at 8 a.m., 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. Please RSVP for a meeting by clicking on one of the links below:

We will also be scheduling an online vote of the membership on the proposal.
