(EMAILWIRE.COM, October 13, 2011 ) New York, NY The attorneys working with Class Action.org would like to hear from retired union workers who noticed a cut in healthcare coverage following a new contract negotiation between their union and former employer. Potentially, these individuals may be able to participate in a class action lawsuit to seek compensation for expenses associated with this reduction in medical insurance benefits. Union retirees who have noticed that their co-pays, prescription drug costs, medical deductibles, monthly premiums, out-of-pocket maximums, or other health care costs have increased under their union retiree health benefits plan may have legal recourse. These individuals can receive a free, no obligation case review offered at http://www.classaction.org/union-retiree-health-benefits.html.

In many instances, companies and unions cannot negotiate new contracts which decrease the union retiree health benefits of those who retired under previous labor agreements. However, it has been alleged that some union members have suffered a decrease in healthcare coverage after a new contract, on which they were not allowed to vote, was negotiated. During the negotiations, union retiree health benefits were reportedly cut, without any increase in their pensions, but active employee benefits were kept the same. Allegedly, in some instances, union members who were hesitant to accept the new agreements were given signing bonuses.

Union members who saw that their union retiree health benefits were cut may have legal recourse to seek compensation for the costs associated with increased co-pays, prescription drug costs, monthly premiums, yearly deductibles and out-of-pocket maximums.
