Ameren Illinois Contract Negotiations; 4-18-2017 Update

Today, negotiations continued with Ameren Illinois as the Company brought their Benefits Department, led by Ms. Lisa Roseland, to the table to present and explain all of the Company’s benefit-related proposals.  The main topic of discussion was the transferring of the IP members into management’s “Options Plan” for medical and prescription drug coverage, the same plan that the CIPS members participate in.  There was much dialogue over this subject, as well as additional questions on this and other matters.  The Company committed to seeking answers for any inquiry that did not get adequately addressed at today’s meeting.

There were no items Tentatively Agreed to, no proposals were withdrawn by either side, and no new or additional proposals were made by the Union or the Company.

The next meetings are scheduled for May 3rd and 4th in Collinsville, IL.
