Discussion was held regarding the county health insurance plan. Mullen stated that he would like to offer three options to the employees and the option of participating in a health savings plan(HSA). The MEA/AFT Union members have chosen the following options: current plan, $2700 deductible or$5000 deductibles. Mullen asked if the county is going to consider paying anything to cover the cost of the spouse or family for the employees as the cost of those plans are cost prohibitively for most employees. Megan stated that she can't afford to cover her spouse. Wortman asked if the county should consider signing a contract for several years in order to get a price reduction on the cost of insurance. Heimann stated the road crew is underpaid by$2.00 per hour compared to other counties and maybe they should look at raising the wages. Kellie will talk to Brendan Hanley with EBMS and ask if he would be willing to give a presentation to the employees on April 2. Doherty and Haddon explained the Supreme Court ruling regarding employees who choose not to belong to the union. The Teamster Union and MEA/AFT Union have stated that the position is still covered under the union contract and eligible for all call-out/overtime, etc. as stated in the contract but the employee who chooses not to belong cannot vote in union meetings and the union will not represent them in grievances'. 7 ATTEST: \S Bonnie Ramey eonard Wort an, Chairman Clerk and Recorder Cory Kirsch, Commissioner Bob Mullen, Commissioner \............. vwuiummmwwnom.ospuw..........w...................... , . 51'144(?, 564.5 --reli-i4.4540/45 _ _____ __ \\ _ _ ___ --- 1 ___ _ — , 1 . , . . . . , __„_. __ __ ____—_______ _____ , _ , 1 1 1 _ 11 . _ 1 , . , : 1 I .
