The Union and company Trustees on the Health and Welfare fund have agreed to benefit improvements without going to arbitration. Effective March 1, 2021 the copay will be reduced to $10, including for retirees.
Dental implants have been approved through in-network Blue Cross dentists at the rate of two per year at no cost to members. This includes bone grafts if necessary, and anesthesia. Retirees are eligible for the in-network discount at in-network Blue Cross dentists.
As soon as COVID vaccines are made available, Local 804 members and their immediate families will have zero copay.
Local 804 will constantly look to improve benefits for our active and retired members. We look forward to more improvements and the continued growth of the Health and Welfare fund.
One Union-One Goal.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Local 804 will be holding the Nominations for Delegates and Alternate Delegates to the June 2021 IBT Convention via Zoom video conference on Sunday, February 28 at 10 am.
Any active member who wishes to attend the Nominations Meeting must register in advance. The Local will verify the member’s eligibility to attend. Once eligibility has been confirmed, the member will receive an email with a zoom invitation to join the meeting. Zoom invitations for any member will be limited to one electronic device only.
Members wishing to nominate, second, or accept nominations are strongly urged to submit nominations, seconds or nomination acceptances in writing. You must be an active member with Teamsters Local Union 804 to participate in the Zoom meeting.
Note: Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the IBT Convention will be held online, not in-person in Las Vegas.
Happy New Year and thank you to Local 804 members everywhere. You've loaded and sorted the packages, delivered presents and essential (and non-essential) goods. You're fed the hungry through City Harvest. Now you are delivering the vaccine and putting a stake through the heart of this pandemic. In a million ways, you've been there for New York and for each other. One union, one goal!
Congratulations to Tom Lamontanaro who is retiring as the Health & Welfare Fund Manager. Tom has worked hard for the members for decades and protected our fund and our benefits. We thank him for his service and wish him the best in his retirement. Long-time and experienced Fund employee, Marc Pantaleone, will serve as our new Fund manager, but Tom will never be replaced!
