Mott Community College faculty union urges school to make fast decision on which health insurance plan it will choose

 
Flint Journal
 
The faculty union at Mott Community College is urging the Board of Trustees to make a fast decision on which health insurance plan it will choose after state law capped the amount that public employers could pay toward employees’ medical plans.

The law requires all public entities, including colleges, schools and governments, to either require employees pay 20 percent of health insurance or a “hard cap,” a maximum dollar figure that could increase out-of-pocket costs to up to 39 percent.

The law specifically leaves unions out of the decision process.

MCC history teacher Brian Harding told the board that when the faculty negotiated its three-year-contract last summer, employees were under the impression that the 80/20 split was the most likely worst-case scenario.
For him, the hard-cap option would nearly double his health care costs, from roughly $3,500 to $6,900 a year.

“Either option will seriously affect my family’s budget,” Harding, a bargaining leader co-chair, told trustees. “We need the college to make a decision and to make one soon.”
