View Full Version : Teamcare opt out

Anyone else hear that we are going to be forced to pay for teamcare coverage whether we want/need it? Sounds like maybe the union is forcing people to take it. Wouldn't be in the company's interest to force someone to take it cause then they'd have to pay for it also.

If this is true, I am curious to the legality of it?

Cutoff to opt out was last December. My understanding was that our local negotiated a window to opt out for those that didn't want included after the new contract. If you missed it, you will be paying for and getting coverage for at least yourself.
