Q.    What if the new health insurance plan had not been approved?

  • The unions or the district would likely open negotiations immediately.  From Feb. 11 to March 1 they would likely reach an agreement and present a new health insurance plan for a board vote.
  • If negations had not reached an agreement by March 1, the old policy would remain in place. The current policy price would have a 39% increase.  It would have been an advantage to work this plan out as soon as possible for all parties concerned.  There is a possibility that the higher priced, old plan would have been in place for a month, two months and possibly longer.  However, it is also a possibility that a new agreement would have been reached within a short amount of time.
