Message from the Administration

Last month all members should have received a bargaining survey from Local 375. The results from this survey will drive our participation in the upcoming negotiations process. For those of you that have completed and returned the survey, thank you. If you have not, please respond as quickly as possible. This is your opportunity to identify your personal priorities. Even though the survey has a return date, you are still encouraged to complete it and submit it. Responses will have value right up to when the process begins. If you need another copy of the survey, please contact the office at 212-815-1375. Additionally, completed surveys can be scanned and submitted via email to contractsurvey@local375.org

Protect Your Prescription Drug Benefits

Despite efforts to contain costs, sharply rising prescription drug prices continue to challenge the DC 37 Welfare Fund’s efforts to maintain the current level of benefits. Facing a projected $55 million-dollar budget gap in the Welfare Fund, and understanding that more money was urgently needed, Union leadership met with City representatives to find a solution.

In January, 2017, the Union and the City reached a tentative agreement to extend the 2010-2017 Economic Agreement by two (2) months and twenty-three (23) days. If the tentative agreement is ratified, the City will increase its contribution to the Welfare Fund by an additional $200 every year on behalf of each member and retiree. This additional contribution will be pro-rated for part-time employees.

This agreement MUST be ratified by the membership. The American Arbitration Association (AAA), an independent monitor, is conducting the ratification vote. Ballots will be mailed out by February 17th and are due back by March 10th.

Members who have not received a ballot by February 23, 2017 may request a duplicate ballot by calling the American Arbitration Association (AAA) at 1-800-529-5218 between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. weekdays (Monday through Friday).

If the agreement is rejected, the Welfare Fund will likely need to make significant reductions to your current benefit level.
