The staff here at OHB (onlyhennikerbruce) has just received the Healthcare Insurance Premium numbers that will be part of the new Collective Bargaining Agreement. teacher-health-benefit14-messages
It break down as follows:
- Currently, 9 bargaining units select single person coverage @ $5,963 tax payer dollars. That will rise to $7,349.46.
- Currently 13 bargaining units select 2 person coverage @ $11,926 tax payer dollars. That will rise to $14,698.79
- Currently 21 bargaining units select family coverage @$16,100 tax payer dollars. That will rise to $19,843.33.
Our current total cost is $546,806 rising to $673,939.80 . That is a 23.25% increase.
In the past we here at OHB offered the following workable solution, all 43 bargaining units be offered single coverage and any additional members of their families can be added with the bargaining unit paying the difference.
If implemented this would reduce the proposed healthcare insurance premium costs by $357,913.
If OHB numbers are wrong please let us know. THE POWER TO STOP THE RUNAWAY TAX TRAIN IS IN YOU HANDS! GET OUT AND VOTE!
Your elected School Board plans on having a Budget Workshop on January 17, 2017 @ 5pm. Tax payers most likely will not be able to ask questions at that meeting.
Then the one and only Public Hearing on this budget is scheduled for February 15, 2017 @ 7pm.
School District meeting March 15, 2017 7pm @ Henniker Community School!
Power to the people…..Peace!
