RiseUp / Wellness Program in Effect for Faculty

As of February 1, 2014, the RiseUp/wellness provisions of the new AFUM contract are implemented. Tom Hopkins, UMS Director of Compensation and Benefits is conducting information sessions for faculty at each campus. We encourage you to attend.

Faculty will pay 10% of the total health insurance premium through March 31, 2014. After that, wellness participants (those who complete RiseUp Level 1) will continue at that rate (the incentive premium). This is a significant savings from the previous rates.

However, non-participants will pay 20% of the total premium starting in April. It's your choice, but please don't pay more unintentionally.

Details are in Article 21 of the AFUM contract.

 

AFUM Contract Ratified

December 19, 2013 -- After counting ballots today, campus representatives confirmed that the pending tentative agreement has been ratified by AFUM's membership. As the Board of Trustees has already ratified it, the new contract is effective from now through June 30, 2015.

The new contract will be posted on the Contracts page when it is published. Thank you so much for your hard work and perseverance through this long and trying process.
