ACE union at YSU OKs new pact

youngstown

Youngstown State University’s classified-employees union has approved a new contract that calls for no raises the first two years with a 2 percent increase the third year.

Association of Classified Employees President Paul Trimacco told the membership that 253 members voted and the final count was 190 yes, 63 no.

ACE employees’ health- care contributions also will increase to 10 percent of the premium the first year, 12 percent the second and 15 percent the third year. Gone is the controversial enrollment bonus. ACE members received a $375 bonus per year for every half-percent enrollment increase. Fall 2010 saw a 3.5 percent enrollment increase, so each ACE member received $2,625 bonus last December.

University trustees are to vote on the ACE contract at a later date. Meanwhile, faculty-union members will continue voting today on a new three-year contract. Results are expected tonight.

SOC,

Those who do not like unions or public workers will still not be happy. They cannot be pleased.

They also agreed to no incentive pay bonus. Kasich and his staff will still get theirs raises. That is why sb5 is a lot of BS.

BYE BYE sb5

Vote NO on issue 2

Suggest a more thorough read: "ACE employees’ health- care contributions also will increase to 10 percent of the premium the first year, 12 percent the second and 15 percent the third year." Percent is of the PREMIUM not SALARY. A $1500 family plan would max out at $225 per month at 15% contribution. At 1.5% of salary prior contract would have paid $87.50 (using annual salary of $70K) now they pay $137.50 more. Private sector shares approximately 20% to 25%. Will be interesting to see what deductibles and co-pays they now have.
