Since 2013, the City has been able go to a neutral and compare a retiree's current healthcare plan to the one offered by their employer. They have not chosen to do so.
On June 6th, 2018 an arbitrator's ruling on our 2017-2019 contract included a provision for the City to start comparing retirees' healthcare that work for the County of Berks. This particular provision was not a subject of bargaining during arbritation, as we only sought to minimize the increases in our current contributions.
If you should get a letter from the City about comparing your healthcare plans, please follow the directions in a timely manner. Gather whatever documents you have regarding your individual situations, and contact a board member. CONTACT US
