Prescription Drug Coverage

Recently members have received letters from Emblem Health regarding mail order prescriptions. The letters indicate that Medco would no longer supply home delivery for prescription drugs and effective January 1, 2012 Express Script Inc. would become the provider. This change ONLY affects those members with drug riders from Emblem Health.

VIDEO: Promoting the CASA Fight Back

Together with District Council 37, the Union is mounting a media campaign to stop the cuts in CASA. In our latest video, we profile SSEU Local 371 and Local 1549 members who went to Albany to tell the Governor’s Redesign Team: No cuts to CASA!

Happy Holidays!

The Union wishes all its members, retirees and their families a Happy Holidays and Happy New Year! 

DOI Investigations

The Union is aware that investigators from the New York City Department of Investigation are appearing at various work sites and questioning members regarding criminal investigations they are conducting. Members should be advised that when this occurs they should tell DOI investigators that they want to have an attorney present to represent them during any questioning.
