UPDATE ON COVID TESTING FOR NON-VACCINATED MEMBERS
As we get closer to the February 9, 2022 deadline for employees either being vaccinated or tested, we continue negotiations with our Employers. Obviously, as we stated in our previous posting of December 30, 2021 we are vehemently opposed to the cost of the tests being paid by the employee.

As we regress over the past year, many of us view it as “A Trip to Hell and Back Again”. First the Omega variant of Covid-19 and now the Omicron variant, but these are not the thoughts we should be having during this holiday season. We should count our blessings and all the things for which we are thankful for like:
The Local 464A UFCW Welfare Service Benefit Fund (“Welfare Fund”) provides medical, prescription drug, dental, vision and legal service benefits to eligible Members and their eligible, enrolled dependents. The Welfare Fund is funded by contributions from employers under collective bargaining agreements with the Union. The Welfare Fund is governed and administered by a Joint Board of Trustees.
