Thank You Salty Boyz Food Truck!

Brothers and Sisters,

Local S6 is truly humbled by the recent support we have been receiving from the community and Maine at large. We would like to extend a special thank you to Salty Boyz Food Truck. These fine people came and fed over 100 of our members on the picket line at no expense to the Local or our members. The co-owners of Highbrow Medical Marijuana financed the entire operation. As former Telecommunications of American Union workers themselves, they understand the need for solidarity and simply wanted to give us some support. The food was incredible and very much appreciated.

You can learn more about Highbrow on their website:

Health Care Coverage Expiration Notice- 7/1/2020

Brothers and Sisters,

We have reached the end of our employer covered health benefits. You should have received something in the mail from GDSC regarding your CIGNA health benefits and how to apply for COBRA benefits along with the premium costs. You can also go to affordable care act and shop on the marketplace or Maine care to see what other options you qualify for. You may find an alternative to cobra that better fits your needs.

In the event you are unsure of what you are going to do you may want to elect cobra now as you have 45 days to make your premium payments. You can do that by signing up on the GD service center or by calling them at General Dynamics Service Center at 1-888-432-3633.

Please find the below link for a letter regarding health insurance expiration. If you are looking to switch to your spouse’s insurance, this letter should help streamline the process.

In Solidarity, Local Lodge S6 Leadership
