New UPS Central States Health Benefits Chart

May 7, 2013: You can download and review a benefits chart for the enhanced Central States C-6 Plan, which would cover many thousands of Teamsters from various regions if the tentative agreement is approved.

This chart is being distributed by the International Union.

Most Teamsters across the country presently in the company plan would be moved to this plan under the tentative agreement. Those in California and in New Jersey Local 177 have until November 1, 2013 to come up with an alternative plan for those members, per a Memorandum of Understanding.

Regarding health coverage for retirees, the tentative agreement includes a Memorandum of Understanding which states that Teamsters presently under the company plan will pay premiums for retiree coverage as follows: Effective 1/1/2013 $50 individual, $100 to include spouse; effective 1/1/2014 $100 individual, $200 with spouse; effective 1/1/2015 $150 individual, $300 with spouse.

We encourage Teamsters to review the health and welfare coverage, as well as the contract.
