Body

 

Staff Recommends: Approval of the attached Resolution

 

 

Explanation:

The City and AFSCME are parties to a collective bargaining agreement (“CBA”) from the period of October 1, 2015 through September 30, 2018 covering the City’s Professional employees.  The CBA sets forth the Life and Health Group Benefits Plan that the City provides for each bargaining unit member and the parties have negotiated a number of changes to the Health Group Benefits Plan. 

 

The City wishes to amend language in Article 20.  The City also wishes to amend Article 34 of the CBA to reflect benefit changes to part-time employees, including offering an AFLAC insurance plan (hospital indemnity plans accident) to those part-time employees who average more than 15 hours per week that is equivalent to the annual $500 they previously received via a Flexible Spending Account.
