UNION’S STATEMENT ON STATE HEALTH BENEFITS PROGRAM

AFSCME Council 63, CWA, IFPTE Local 195, the New Jersey Council of State College Locals, AFT, and IBEW Local 33 are pleased to announce that they have reached an agreement with the State to ensure that State employees continue to have access to high quality and affordable healthcare plans.

By engaging in the collective negotiations process, the Unions and the State have successfully reduced the increases in employee healthcare contributions from 18% to 3% this year, coupled with certain modest changes in the design of the State’s healthcare plans, resulting in a more affordable option.

The Unions, together with the Governor, whose engagement on this issue was vital to the successful conclusion of negotiations, have forged an agreement on healthcare that benefits union members and their families by avoiding unaffordable cost increases.
