Union Life Insurance

exclamationEnrollment is currently open for a new $10,000 life insurance benefit through Colonial Life. This benefit is paid for by Council 2 and is free to all members.

The $1000 life insurance policy Council 2 currently provides will no longer be available after December 2017. This new benefit replaces it, but members will need to enroll, since it is with a new insurance provider.

Enroll before October 31st to access this benefit.

You can sign up online through the Council 2 website, or by calling the Colonial Life Enrollment Center at 1-866-614-1815.

Main Unit Final Offer

View the summary of changes for the main unit offer.

After 11 months of bargaining, KCLS and Local 1857 did not reach agreement on wages or medical benefits.  The offer you are voting on includes KCLS’ final offer on those two topics.  The bargaining committee feels that these proposals are too much of a takeaway, and will open the door to even more drastic changes to benefits in future years.  We are recommending that the membership vote no on this offer.
