Unit 1 members with contracts of 130 hours or more during the 2009-2010 academic year are eligible for the dental plan. This entitlement continues until the end of August even if you do not have an appointment in the summer terms. However, if you are no longer receiving a paycheque during the summer months, your premiums will not be paid and your coverage will lapse. Members in this situation who wish to remain on the plan are advised to pay their portion of the premium by submitting post-dated cheques in the required amount to graduate studies. The Unit 1 rates are as follows: $7.04/month (Single coverage) & $62.91/month (Family coverage).
If you have any questions or concerns about dental eligibility during the summer months, please give us a call at 905-525-9140 ext. 24003 or drop by the union office in the basement of Wentworth Hall. More information about benefits can also be found on our new website: www.cupe3906.org.
