Ameren Contract/Benefit Negotiations Update 051817

System Council U-05 and Ameren met today to continue contract and benefit negotiations.  SC U-05 made a counter proposal to the company’s Options health care plan that included phasing in the employee’s share of health care premiums over 5 years; improvements to early retirement reduction factors; pay credit increase to all tiers of the cash balance plan; and eliminating the spousal premium penalty.  The System Council also countered the LTD plan. 

The welding premium proposal was withdrawn by the System Council.  Ameren withdrew their hi-visibility FR clothing proposal.  We are meeting again May 31 and June 1 in Springfield.  

In Solidarity, 
The Local 51 Negotiating Committee
