Additional Information Regarding the Retiree Health Tentative Agreement
Please see the attached information from Ann Smith and your Negotiating Team regarding the Retiree Health Tentative Agreement. This document includes some information already included in previous e-blasts on this issue, but it also includes new information and addresses many of the frequently asked questions that have come up since the Tentative Agreement was first announced. If you read only one document about the proposed retiree health deal, please take the time to read this one. It is not a short document—as there is no accurate “short version” of this proposed deal—but it is organized in perhaps a more user-friendly way than previous communications.

City Concourse Silver Room 250
8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
