More Lies about Health Care

September 24, 2013: Some members report that business agents have told members that if they don’t vote Yes on the Central Supplement, they will have no health insurance as of January 1.

This is an outright lie and contradicts what Hoffa and Hall have put in writing: health benefits will be continuous, and there is a signed contract extension in place.

Some of the lies have been spread in the shops, but in Denver Local 455, the BA even stated it at a union meeting held on September 22.

When a used car salesman tells you blatant lies, you shouldn't buy the car. The first No Vote in the Central Region forced improvements in the health benefits. The second No Vote will finish the job.
