Chairman Kolluri addressed the Commissioners and those present and stated that we are in the middle of the 196 Union negotiations. Also, that we are seeking to structure uniform contracts for all of the Authorities and State union employees.

Chairman Kolluri stated that it is the intent to structure the union contracts to unify both the non-union and union employees with the same health benefits. Chairman Kolluri stated that he would like to follow the same pattern as the non-union employees have regarding pay-out for health care. The pay-out was 50% and has recently been reduced to 25% for non-union employees.
