***New Insurance Info***

To all members at Montreal-Trudeau Airport

 Subject: insurer to change your group insurance plan


 Dear members,

 The binding agreement with Desjardins group plan to which you are subscribed too via your employment with STAS will end August 31, 2016 at 23h59 59s.

 TC Local 1976 and the Local 9554 invites you to begin this transition together with the new insurer of your group insurance plan for the Quebec airport region that will be Industrial Alliance.

Following a vast test of the market, Industrial Alliance has offered the best overall combination of services, financial and management, with a customer approach which will be more interesting. As of September 1st 2016, you can now make your insurance claims online!

 Thus, from September 1, 2016, Industrial Alliance will take over. In order for your new coverage with Industrial Alliance to be up to date, you must complete and sign the application form.

In order to complete the transition, representatives will be at the Montreal airport on 25 and 26 August 2016 from 8 am to 19h (location to be determined with STAS) to help you complete your forms and give you your new payment cards. If for any reason you can you be present during these 2 days, please be aware that you may at all times complete and sign the forms after August 26, 2016. The forms must be filled out before making claims to the new insurer.

 ** It is important to note that if you have claims for expenses before September 1, you must send them to Desjardins. You have until November 30, 2016 to do so!!! Any claims made after 1 September 2016 will be sent to Industrial Alliance. **

The covererages are completely identical to those of Desjardins and your personal claim history will be transferred to the new insurer. So you will not have to pay for new franchises ($ 50). In addition, coverage amounts available at the time of the change of insurer will be provided to Industrial Alliance. For example, if prior to 1 September 2016 you had used $ 800 for dental care after 1 September 2016, the balance of $ 700 will be available with the new insurer. Another example, you used $ 200 for massages, you will receive the balance of $ 150 with the new insurer. Finally, the coverage’s are renewed at 0, on the 1st of day of the new civil year.

 We ensured that no member will face any prejudices while transferring from insurer to the next.

***Union News***

-Our Local, Union Local 9554 of the United Steelworkers, is nearing completion. The long process to autonmy will be completed in the coming weeks when STAS and USW finalizes financial transfers towards new bank accounts set out for us.

-The Local is working on information booklets for all members. The booklets will contain all the information pertaining to the union, insurance, pension and frequentluy asked questions. The booklet, once produced, will be distributed to all members, and given to all new employees.

-New trainning has been booked for current/new union delegates as well as for our Health and Safety reps.

-The union will be holding town hall meetings in the near future (date to be announced) concerning the pension plan. The process will be in sort that all the members who decide to attend will get to voice their priorities and opinions in regards to the collective pension plan.

-We have many arbitrations in the months to come. The next arbitration date is on the 5th of September 2016 in which the Securitas assiduity policy will be heard by an arbitrator and a decision will be redered in the following weeks . Our permanent has been hard at work with Jean-Francois Coupal to ensure we secure arbritration dates ASAP in order for us to have closure on the pending labour issues with Stas. The next arbitration hearings are on a variety of issues ranging from termination, suspensions and more...

-When the last budget was presented to members, a special part of it was dedicated to the CATSA Fund. The purpose of this fund was to start contesting CATSA decisions we deemed unfit or unfair, decisions such as decertification and infiltrations. In Ottawa, there is a CATSA oversight board where we can contest decisions we disagree with and have lawyers plead our case against representatives of CATSA. In fact, every government agency have oversight committees where citizens can contest any government decision affecting them.

Local 1976 and Local 8922 (the previous locals we were part of) have never done so in the past because under the Labour Code, the union only has a duty of representation towards it's member's employer and because it's very expensive. Having established our own Local, working only for Pre-Board Screeners, Local 9554 wishes to defend it's members the the maximum of our ability and not the minimal obligation set under the Code. This alone was one of the main argument in favor of an autonomous screener local
