Dear Health Plan Representatives,
The delegates assembled at the 2018 National Convention took action on a resolution from Michigan, Washington, Alaska, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana Postal Worker Unions, NEB # 5. The delegates approved the NEB’s recommendation that considering concerns with the execution and accountability of NEB #5 as written recommended a substitute. In lieu of NEB #5, the delegates directed Secretary-Treasurer Liz Powell and Health Plan Director John L. Marcotte to meet and arrive at a recommendation in the spirit of this resolution within 90 days for presentation to the NEB.
Several in person and phone discussions were made by Sister Powell and myself to arrive at a recommendation that satisfies the NEB committee concerns with the resolution as written within the directed 90 days. This was reported to the HPR’s at our seminar in San Antonio.
I am pleased to inform you the National Executive Board has approved the below recommendation for cash payments and incentives to Local, State and Retiree Chapter organizations.
Please inform your Local, State and Retiree chapter leadership of this wonderful support of their Health Plan efforts by the National Executive Board.
In friendship and solidarity,
John L. Marcotte
