Under the non union contract Trimet is paying $1243 a month for the employee and their spouse. Under the new contract proposal Trimet will pay 95% of that coverage or $1,190 a month. The employee on the other hand will have to pay $63 a month
Under the contract language Trimet will only pay the same amount as they are paying for the non union employee for the union employee which is $1,190 a month. But the union 90/10 plan has a monthly premium of $1753 a month.
That leaves the union employee with out of pocket of $563/mo! That wipes out the entire pension check of many of the retirees.
It basically forces everyone that is retired off Blue Cross.
This is not acceptable
That's a total outrage
