Next week we will begin Open Enrollment for medical, dental, vision insurance, etc. for 2023. UHC increased the rates of medical insurance by 7%. However, Dudek & Bock is paying for the entire increase. The rates will remain the same for employees.
In addition to the UHC HMO and UHC PPO, we are offering one additional plan. This is a cheaper PPO based on the Advocate health care system. If you already have an Advocate doctor, you might want to consider this plan.
Benefit books will be distributed next week, but there is no change other than the additional PPO offered.

Effective July 1, 2022, the City of Chicago requires that all employees receive 2 hours of sexual harassment training. The first hour is the state-required training that we have done for three years. Now, there will be a second hour of “bystander” training. This training is MANDATORY. Union members will be paid 1 hour for completing this training outside of work hours. Salaried employees can do the training during the workday. It is offered in English, Spanish, and Polish. In addition, Supervisors must have a third hour of training. We will let you know when that is available.
