Flint Employees Expected To Pay More In Health Care

City of Flint Facebook

According to the Flint Journal, Flint firefighters and police officers will pay more into their health care costs under a new bill which Governor Snyder has signed. The law goes into effect January 1 and it caps the amount that public employers can pay toward employees’ medical plans.

This affects expired union contracts as well as any or renewed future union contracts. Mayor Dayne Walling says this new plan could save the city about $500,000 a year. In addition to the fire and police department, this could also affect teachers as well and many unions aren’t happy with Snyder’s new policy. Walling went on to say they will cooperate with the new law because they want to make sure the city of Flint gets continued state funding.
