Update to Post Retirements Benefits – PRB Grievances
With the signing of the Memorandum of Settlement (MOS) in relation to all the outstanding grievances related to the Post Retirement Benefits, the information recently shared on this site has become a moot point and can no longer be perceived as an option.
Item #8 in that MOS clearly indicates that all active and outstanding grievances are hereby withdrawn and that no future grievances can be filed in relation to the Post Retirement Benefits (PRB) as announced February 18, 2014. That would include the grievances that I have shared as options to consider before this settlement was announced.
The only grievances that can be filed in the future would be in relation to any violation of this new MOS on the PR Benefits.
I thank everyone who took an interest in what we shared on our local site and I appreciate the help and patience of Local 468’s Communications Officer, Jim Puckalo, in working with me to get the information posted so that we would be prepared should there have been no settlement. Great Job Jim.
I encourage everyone to visit the pages on the OPSEU.org site where this Agreement is posted along with a few explanatory documents. Should you have questions on what they shared, please use the PensionandBenefits@opseu.org email address to reach out to the staff there for any answers that they may provide.
President, Local 468
