Worthless Union! Throwing it's members under the bus to get their insurance into another company. They are using misinformation and lies to get the members upset and against the company. The company has put out several proposals and according to the union paying $11.20/week PRETAX is gonna break their backs. The union is a HUGE scam!

Damn, that's fantastic! For a single person, I pay $105/mo. & I'm also in the Union. The days where a company pays for the majority of an employees insurance premiums are a thing of the past. If your company is asking that your portion is only $44.80/mo., TAKE IT! You can't beat it, unless your insurance coverage is extremely lacking. The non-union shops have to pay the majority or all of their insurance premiums & from what "without" indicated, it's outrageously expensive!! You need to rally together & make your voices be heard to your Union leaders. I can't believe that's all you'll have to pay.

BadA you are correct. Another dead thread brought back to life. I wonder how bored a person must be to scroll down the list of forums and find one that hasn't been commented on for 5 months and the other 2 comments before that are over 2 years old. lol

Are you kiddin me you are bitchin about 11.20 a week that is why you and your unions are being busted because all you want is more and more and more... why cant you just work your asses off and be grateful that you are working. oh by the way i was a union man on the west coast for over 15 years and i finally had enough because of people like you wanting something for nothing.. when are you going to realize that these companies are in buisness to make money not to support your lavish life style so you can do little to nothing at work... your like a bully on the school yard that goes around talking crap and having your big friends i.e.(the union) trying to clean up the mess you made.... why dont you guys just vote a contract to keep you working for the next 6 years instead of allways wanting more and more.... like i said i was in the union, open your eyes or your going to open them looking for a new job..... i dont mean to be an ass but quit being a little bitch..

In the story of the good Samaritan take notice who was the one who paid any money. Few people can comprehend the way of Christ and his kingdom!

We were with Golden Rule administered by U ited Healthcare. It is super insurance, but $600.00 a month for 2. Now we are with Christian Healthcare Ministries, the hold plan and the Brothers Keeper which is the unlimited coverage plan for $300.00 a month for 2. Hubby is a retired Teamster. Shop around.

Bullshit we work our asses off, I work twice as hard at my company than I ever have. The union just makes sure I get a living wage to do it.
