Vote Sarah Jane Rodriguez for APWU Health Plan Director

Sisters and Brothers,

I am respectfully asking for your vote and support to be your next Health Plan Director, as well as your support of the Fighting 4U Team.

I will work hard to maintain the great benefits we have currently, and have many ideas for achievable additions and improvements.

Free and reduced gym memberships based on the member’s level of participation.

Rebates for retired Medicare Part B participants.

Additionally, I aim to attain a supplemental Vision Plan; enhance our Dental benefits; increase Wellness and Preventative Programs; expand our PPO network with member suggestions; utilize our talented Health Plan Representatives in new ways to best educate and support our members; as well as develop digital strategies that will help members gain a better understanding of all the benefits our Health Plan offers.

Thank you for your consideration,

Sarah Jane

    Brother Haefner,

    My point is our members should not see their premiums double in one year and continue to see a “rebate” going directly from United Healthcare to APWU slush fund.

    Would you be happy to pay double for a new car and then learn that the dealer received the excess cost in a rebate from the manufacturer?

    As for passing amendments to address this I ask one question. When did we vote as a body to accept rebates from our healthcare underwriter while doubling the premiums.

    Don’t turn a blind eye while we are nickel and dimed while a wealthy insurance company gets wealthier.

    Brother Ashley:

    If one understands the laws regarding authorization for expending Union funds, it would be realized that no National officer, sitting or incoming, has the authority by virtue of their office, to make any such commitment. Such an expenditure can only be authorized by action of the National Convention, or in the interim, action by the National Executive Board.

    If you are serious about this, you may want to attend your Local Union meetings, and convince your peers to support your position, write up a resolution, pass it by majority vote, and submit it to the National Convention.

    Personally, I cannot support such a resolution.

    Fraternally.

    Just one request Sarah Jane and we’re onboard.

    My Consumer Driven Plus One premiums doubled this year. When United Healthcare presents that multi-million dollar check to APWU in the fall can we get a rebate out to the very people whose increased premiums made up that surplus?
