Open Enrollment for benefits for 2022 will begin the week after Thanksgiving. If you plan to enroll in the HMO, you will need to look up the PCP (Primary Care Physican) number for you and other family members on the UHC website. Instructions are here:
Because Christmas Day and New Year’s Day fall on Saturdays, our holiday schedule will be:
Friday, Dec. 24 – Christmas Eve HOLIDAY
Monday, Dec. 27 – Christmas HOLIDAY paid
Tuesday, Dec. 28 – PLANT CLOSED
Wednesday, Dec. 29 – PLANT CLOSED
Thursday, Dec. 30 – New Year HOLIDAY paid
Friday, Dec. 31 – New Year Eve HOLIDAY
Employees who have not used all their vacation days can ask their supervisors to count those days for Dec. 28 and Dec. 29.
We are making every effort to avoid “hot jobs” and the need for anyone to work the week between Christmas & New Year.
Everyone will return to work on Monday, January 3.
Dudek & Bock will be open on November 22, 23, and 24 (the days before Thanksgiving). Thanksgiving Day and the Friday after Thanksgiving are paid holidays. Normally, you would be required to work 4 hours on the day before the holiday to be paid for the holiday. This rule is being waived for Nov. 24, but you MUST let your supervisor in advance know if you plan to take off.
For several years Dudek & Bock has offered a discount on health insurance to employees who participate in a “Wellness” program. The discount is entirely funded by the company. The insurance carrier does not pay for this. This year, to get the Wellness discount, you need to have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19. The discount for an employee is $10 per pay period or $260 per year. If you are married and your spouse is on Dudek & Bock insurance, your husband or wife can also get the discount. That means that if you are married you can save $520 per year.
85% of our employees have already provided copies of their vaccination cards. If you want the discount for your spouse, please provide a copy of his/her card as well.
The Lynne Mohr Scholarship for Skilled Trades provide $1,000 to an Illinois resident currently enrolled in an Illinois institution of higher education and studying skilled trades related course(s). Applications are due electronically by Monday, November 22 with the finalist to be announced in early December. Lynne Mohr worked at Brite-O-Matic, the specialty car wash systems manufacturer founded by her father William Gasser, from age 14 through her retirement in 2018. Lynne was deeply committed to the Midwest manufacturing industry and served on the board of the Illinois Manufacturers’ Association. To honor her legacy, her family raised $30,000 to establish an endowment in her name for students studying skilled trades.
