This segment continues to talk about our Members Resources page on our website and mobile app. One of the links in Member Resources/Services, is the Benefits Assistance page. Local 1150 established the Benefits Assistance Office in February 2009 with the creation of the Hourly Benefits Coordinator through collective bargaining. The office assists members with dissemination of benefits information, navigation through benefits processes, including claims and hearings, or answers to any benefits related questions you may have. Topics may include medical, dental, prescription drug or vision care, education, pension, retirement, worker’s compensation, disability, and savings plan.
On this page, you will find the very helpful links to many things that may impact your employment regarding benefits. The first link and drop down is to our Benefits Coordinator, John Santamaria. John has a very extensive background and history in our Union and is very diverse in all areas of the hourly benefits package, including: Pension, Teamsters Rx, Medical, Dental, Vision Care and more. He has offices located in the Stratford plant as well as at the CT Union Hall. In the drop down you find the office hours for each location as well as the links to contact him via email or by telephone.
The second drop down on the benefits page brings you to our Teamster RX links and pages. Here you will find a link to log into your Teamster RX account to place orders or make changes and see how the plan works and what has recently changed. You will also see numbers and contact information if you ever have any questions regarding your prescriptions.
The last two drop down menus contain almost every link and phone number you need to deal with anything benefits related. There are links and numbers to CIGNA, Davis Vision, Hewitt, Medicare, Workers Comp, Payroll, UTC and Lockheed savings plan, and many more.
At Teamsters Local 1150, we are proud that we have negotiated the Benefits Coordinator position to assist our members with their benefit concerns. As a member you now have someone that is a Union Member to help you. Anything you need to talk about is strictly confidential and follows all HIPPA guidelines and laws. If you ever have any questions regarding your benefits, feel free to reach out to John or stop by our webpage and app to do some research on your own. As always if you have any questions, comments, or concerns, feel free to ask away. We are here for you, because of you. Stay informed, Get involved, Stand United!
