What's New
Medical Benefit Upgrade

Updated On: Jul 24, 2015 (17:11:00)

Attention all Moving and Storage Members:

The Northern New Jersey Teamsters Benefit Plan recently sent out a notice of benefit improvements to your Union medical plan Level 6.   Local 814 is pleased that the Northern Plan is offering members in that plan level improvements to the Plan’s dental, optical and prescription drug benefits, as described in the notice recently sent to you.   

The Plan’s notice explains all the improvements in detail along with the effective dates of those improvements.  The improvements enhance the networks available for the dental and vision, and increase the benefits available to members under the Northern New Jersey Teamsters Benefit Plan. Also note that, effective January 1, 2016, the annual prescription deductible will be reduced from $200 to $50 per family.  Please be sure to read the notice.  

You should have received the notice in the mail recently directly from the Northern NJ Teamsters Benefit Fund explaining these improvements to the plan Level 6.  If you have any questions, please call them at 1-800-250-3121.

Union Book

Updated On: Jan 09, 2015 (12:04:00)


The REAL Union Book

To this day we say "buy your Union Book" when we tell a new member to join the Union.  But these days, it's only a figure of speech.  Members who join the Union receive a Union photo ID card and a copy of the contract, but no "Union Book."

What was the Union Book?  A former member's daughter was kind enough to lend us her father's.  In the photo above you see a "Union Book" from 1951.  Members used the book to track their benefit fund stamps, which would later be credited to them.  

These days, benefits are tracked electronically, but we thought we'd share this piece of Local 814 history.
