The Affordable Care Act presents distinct challenges to the collective bargaining process in evaluating approaches to future negotiations, the requirement that multiemployer plans assess its impact on existing welfare plan structure, and those measures necessary to meet compliance with the Act. Our speakers will discuss recent regulatory and administrative pronouncements unique to multiemployer plans and how those developments affect the economics of health care. Particular emphasis will be given to bargaining in different unionized industries—whether high-wage or low-wage—and the implication to their multiemployer funds. Discussion will include preparation for collective bargaining, both from the union and the employer standpoints, how health care exchanges may be incorporated into the bargaining process itself, and why it is important to maintain continuity in the delivery of health care benefits to benefit fund participants and their dependents.
Our speakers for this special workshop are:
Robert Archer, Partner, Archer, Byington, Glennon & Levine LLP
Mitra Behroozi, Executive Director, 1199 SEIU, Benefit and Pension Fund
Randy G. DeFrehn, Executive Director, National Coordinating Committee for Multiemployer Plans
