Tell TeamCare: Protect Healthcare for Laid-Off Workers

A global pandemic is no time to lose your healthcare. Our union’s largest health and welfare plan, TeamCare, can protect Teamsters and their families by waiving the its one-punch and three-punch rules and making sure laid off Teamsters keep their benefits.

Thousands of Teamsters are at risk of losing their health benefits because of COVID-19 layoffs.

Under TeamCare rules, freight and carhaul Teamsters have to work three days per week, or lose their benefits, unless they pay a hefty COBRA fee.

UPS and UPS Freight Teamsters have to work at least one day per week, under the one-punch rule, to maintain their healthcare coverage.

It doesn’t have to be this way. TeamCare has $7 billion in reserves. That’s two years in reserves. Most health funds have three to six months. 

We call on TeamCare to suspend the one-punch and three-punch rules and protect working Teamsters and our families during the COVID-19 crisis.
