Manchester aldermen OK Water Works contract
The contract, between United Steelworkers Local 8938 and the utility, raises health insurance premiums to 17.5 percent from 5 percent and is projected to bring $219,000 in savings over the term of the contract.
The Water Works union was one of two that rejected a contract extension agreed to by other city unions last year. The proposal then was to raise the employee contribution rate for health care to 12.5 percent and then 15 percent the next year.
He said the employee contribution rate is still too low. “I don’t think this brings us to where we need to be on health care costs,” he said.
