UE Members at Graham Packaging Still Don't Pay for Health Insurance!
The UE Local 1421 members at Graham Packaging take satisfaction from knowing that under the terms of their new agreement health insurance will continue to be a company-paid benefit – without a cent coming out of their pockets towards the cost of the premium.
Also, the contract sets doctor-visit co-payments at $5, so that the cost to Graham workers can’t be raised by health care providers.
Negotiations took five days, concluding March 1. UE members ratified the contract on March 6.
