The Group Insurance Commission will hear from you on Wednesday, February 1 at 12:30 about:

Email today to keep your health care cost share from increasing

Dear Colleague,

Once again, we need to fight to keep your cost share for your health insurance from increasing.  Please take action TODAY to fight unfair changes to health insurance for educators, other public employees and retirees.

Click HERE to e-mail members of the Group Insurance Commission and urge them to oppose plan design changes that would affect state and municipal employees, their dependents and retirees.

Upcoming Events and Information from the FSU

Dear Colleague,

Welcome back to campus for those of you who are returning.  For those of you who are new, welcome to UMass Boston. 

  Most NTTs who were given notices of reappointment were hired back.  We do not have an exact figure, however.  Four faculty on continuing contracts were given layoff notices effective Fall 17 due to a projected lack of work.

Urgent message to your legislator or your health care cost share will increase

Dear Colleague,

I hope you are having a great summer.  Two urgent issues require your attention:

1. Governor Charlie Baker has vetoed $412 million from the fiscal 2017 budget passed by the Legislature. These vetoes have serious repercussions for MTA members, including a potential increase in your health care cost share from 20% to 25% (if you are now paying 20%, your share will increase to 25%).  Other educational funding has been cut as well for non-faculty members. 

Information from the FSU

Dear Colleagues,

I hope you had a restful break and are back in the swing of things.  Here’s an update on what’s happening on campus.
