It appears the Company's Service Center has sent out to our members an incomplete Annual Enrollment Packet. The packet that was sent DOES NOT have Bluecross BlueShield as a option available. The Union has contacted the Company about this error.
This is not an error, if you currently have Blue Cross Blue Shield as your provider then you can access it by computer. The option of BCBS is only available to those who currently have it.

Dear Sisters and Brothers,
You know as Union members we depend on each other. In Unity, there is strength. It’s imperative that we work together if we are to be successful in these increased attacks the Company relentlessly continues to bombard us with. Even with the language we currently have in our Contract Agreement, this Company has managed to bring in an outside entity to perform work that has been part of our negotiated agreement for years.
Now, it is essential that each and every member do his or her part if we are to increase our strength and move forward. Today it’s Material Controllers, what will it be tomorrow? We will need every eligible employee as a member of our Union. With your help and support we can accomplish this. We have no alternative, we will need everyone to fight for the best representation possible. Local 709 is initiating an in-plant organizing campaign. Shop Stewards will be receiving information on potential members in their departments along with applications. We are asking and encouraging our members to talk to co-workers that are not members and encourage them to join our Union and our fight.
In this endeavor, Local Lodge 709 is doing a Membership Sign-ups Incentive Blitz, for every 2 new member signups you will receive a cap and lanyard, 4 sign-ups you get a t-shirt of your choice, 6 signups you receive an IAM watch. There will be a total tallied amount of how many an individual signs up on Thursday December 1st 2016. It will be posted on Saturday December 3rd at the Union meeting and a report given.
