Unions Push Back Attack on Retirees
­

Teamsters Local 2010, together with our sister Unions and other employees of UC, successfully prevented the Regents from voting on a proposal to degrade retiree health benefits for UC employees and retirees. The Regents planned a vote at their July meeting to eliminate the longstanding policy to fund the cost of retiree health benefits at the current floor of 70 percent.

Fortunately, after the outcry from unionized and non-represented staff, as well as the Academic Senate, the agenda item was stricken from the meeting.

In addition to Local 2010 sending a letter as part of the University of California’s Union Coalition – we felt that this issue is of such importance that we also gave public comment in front of the full Board of Regents on Thursday, July 13.  Click here to view the video and hear the entire statement.

“It is nothing short of reckless to propose to eliminate the UC’s commitment to fund retiree health benefits at the current floor of 70 percent. This isn’t just about money – peoples’ health outcomes and ultimately lives will be imperiled.”

This fight to protect our benefits is not over.

The issue is likely to appear for discussion at the September Regents meeting. We will be working together with our allies in the coming weeks to mount a campaign against this shortsighted attempt to cut worker and retiree benefits.

Stand Together, Win Together
