Health Insurance For Town Employees May Get Airing By Selectboard
The Selectboard is in the process of reviewing the Town's personnel policies and that discussion is slated to continue on Wednesday, September 26.. One topic that may get an airing is health insurance for workers, particularly those not subject to the union contract.
The Town's personnel policies on major medical insurance are out of date by eight years. The Town typically extends the same benefits to non-union workers that union workers get. However, parity is not expressly required by the personnel policies. Union benefits might also be subject to change, as the collective bargaining agreement expired on June 30 and confidential negotiations with the union are apparently ongoing.
