Congress is considering another stimulus bill to help save the economy from

further decline. Your pension benefits must be addressed in this stimulus bill.

Unless Congress takes action, your hard earned pension will be cut to almost

nothing by 2025.

Congress has helped airlines, the auto industry, banks,

and Wall Street.

Call today and let your Senators know that now is the time

to fix this critical issue !

• Provide your name and where you live

• Tell them support for multi-employer pensions must be included in the

upcoming stimulus bill

• Tell them you are a participant in the GCC/IBT National Pension Fund

• Tell them your pension security is a top priority for you in the upcoming

election and you hope it's high on the Senator's list of priorities also!

See attached information packet for more details.

Can you help us?

We are asking for your help.

We have received information on Local 458M members passing away from other sources, but we have not been successful in reaching the family. Please look over the list below if you know the family please have them call the local office at 630-668-4337, so they can collect on their death benefit:

Health & Welfare Updates due to Covid-19

It has been a very challenging last couple of months as our worlds have turned upside down. We are facing times that I don’t think anyone would have ever imagined we would be living through. We have worked very hard with our employers and our council to see what type of process and procedures we can put in place to get everyone through these trying times.

The Board of Union Health Care Trustees had a special conference call regarding the COVID-19 and what we can do to help our members get through this pandemic. The trustees have come up with a new short-term disability plan for our members that are directly impacted by COVID-19. There are some guidelines that would have to be met for the members to qualify for the STD. Please see below.

Coverage Changes:

  • COVID-19 testing and any related visit associated with the test, including telehealth visits, is covered at 100%

  • Treatment for COVID-19 is covered at regular plan benefits

  • All virtual visits will be covered during this COVID-19 Pandemic.  MD Live is still 100%, all others covered at regular plan benefits.

    During this COVID-19 Pandemic, the definition of disabled or disability for employees has been amended to include:

  • You are subject to a government quarantine or isolation order related to the Pandemic Illness.

  • You received a written recommendation from a health care provider that you self-quarantine due to concerns related to the Pandemic Illness

  • Your employer requested that you self-quarantine.

    Other points to note:

  • Employees cannot collect unemployment and Short Term Disability (STD) at the same time – one or the other.

  • Employees that are furloughed will not automatically quality for STD, they must meet the new definition.

If you have any questions that you might qualify for this benefit, please do not hesitate to contact BMGI at 1-800-997-4586.

We wish that all of you and your families stay safe and healthy. We look forward to hopefully meeting together again after the summer break.

Covid-19 and Unemployment Benefits

As we are all aware our Country and State are suffering a Virus Pandemic and as a result many of our brothers and sisters have been laid off due to lack of work.

Unfortunately, many companies financially are not able to keep their employees working. Please click on the following link to address any questions regarding Covid-19 Unemployment Benefits

We need to help get this virus under control by staying healthy, making sure to respect social distancing, and stay at home to reduce exposure.

We hope this epidemic gets under control soon, so we can all get back to work.

But for now please stay safe and healthy!
