25% Increase in Healthcare Cost for UPS Retirees

     I just recieved a notification that there will be a 25% increase in the cost to UPS retirees for their healthcare. The effective date is on August 1, 2013.
     Most of you that have retired in recent years were paying $200 per month for your healthcare. The new amount according to the letter from UPS Health and Welfare Package for Retired Employees will be increased to $247.50 per month, per person. Or $495 for you and your spouse.
     If you haven’t recieved a notification, or feel that this is in some way wrong, call your Local Union and let them know what you think.
