Director of Health Benefits Michael Masters:
Mike Masters discussed the NALC Quit for life program where the NALC insurance helps with smoking cessation, and weight loss. Mike went on to discuss the MBA's paid up in 20 years whole life policy. It is a good plan to get life insurance on your children. the younger they are when you start the cheaper the premiums and once they reach 20 years old the cost goes away and they have coverage for life.
Financial report read to the membership with no questions or comments made.
AFL-CIO Report: Joe Dimaria:
Political Education:H.R. 756 has been introduced as well as H.R. 760, It is our hope both bills are merged and door to door delivery is protected by H.Res 28 which now has 167 co-sponsors. We do need the help of our members regarding the letter carrier political fund. None of your dues money goes to political campaigns and we need voluntary donations to help get labor friendly people elected. Click Here to go to instruction on how to give. Recommendations are $5 per pay period through payroll deduction but as little as $2 would help greatly.
