Tape Release 2/18/22
I can now say with a fair degree of certainty that your negotiated general wage increase and retroactivity checks will be issued next week. Payroll cannot break out the retroactivity into a separate check, so you’ll be receiving one for both.
You’ll also be receiving an email from the benefits department about a new open enrollment due to the negotiated benefit changes in the contract. The open enrollment will be from February 23rd to March 2nd, and advise you that your contribution towards your health care is increasing from 21% to 22% effective March 1st and the new specialty medication program through Accredo will begin May 1st.
This is your President John Pusloskie, thanking you for your solidarity and We Are CWA STRONG.
