A Message from UFCW Local 1262 President Harvey Whille
Our members health and well-being — as well as knowing they will have a secure future when they retire — are important to all of us here at Local 1262. That is why we consistently negotiate a comprehensive package of benefits with your employers during our collective bargaining sessions. These benefits are what set you apart from non-union workers in your industry and help you and your family enjoy a healthier, secure lifestyle.
At a time when many employers are charging monthly co-payments to cover health insurance premiums – or eliminating health care benefits and pensions entirely – Local 1262 members continue to enjoy these valuable benefits which greatly add to the value of your union membership and your compensation level in general.
An overview of your benefits can be accessed by clicking on your company’s name in the list on the left. There are also links to the various companies who provide benefits, frequently asked questions and more. I invite you to review this information and, if you have questions, to call our Health & Welfare Office for personal assistance at 1-800-522-4161 (Monday to Friday – 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.).
We at Local 1262 are pleased to provide these benefits to our members and take comfort in knowing that our members have the peace of mind which affordable, comprehensive health care coverage provides to you and your family.
As always, I consider it a privilege to represent you and to protect you and your family’s health and well-being.
