Benefits

Affordable access to quality health insurance was one of the main reasons the GAs at MSU organized our Union. Health insurance continues to be an issue of great importance to our members. Over the past twelve years we have made major improvements to the health care plan offered to MSU GA’s including, mental heath, dental and dependent coverage. In our last round of negotiations we were successful in reducing the cost of prescriptions, increasing the number of visits for mental health treatment while reducing the cost for these visits, and secured free vaccinations and meds for overseas assignments.
