REMINDER: Membership Vote tomorrow on Health Care agreement

A ratification vote of the membership will be held tomorrow, Wednesday, January 16 on the tentative agreement on heath care costs.

The vote will be held from 12:30–1:30 p.m. and 5:00–6 p.m. in the Executive Conference Room upstairs. Members are encouraged to arrive at the start time for a discussion.

Members must be in good standing to be eligible to vote. If you have any questions about your eligibilty please email the guild office at office@albanyguild.org.

Under the agreement, the union members would pay $43.90 a week, up $6.14 or 16.3 percent, from the current $37.76. That includes both the year over year premium increase and a share of the company reimbursement.

If ratified, the increase will take effect with the pay period that begins Monday, January 21.
