Cadillac Tax Repealed!

We have great news for the hard-working men and women of our regional council: The potentially harmful Cadillac Tax has been repealed! This is really important, because, if allowed to take effect, the Cadillac Tax would have had a significant negative impact on the quality of benefits our plans would be able to offer to members. 

Repealing this tax has been a UBC priority for years, and its successful repeal is a positive outcome from hard work of UBC regional councils all over the country. At the SECRC, EST Tom Jenkins, Political Director Brett Hulme, the staff and member leaders all played a role in this national effort by also helping to convince an unprecedented number of Congressional members to co-author the bill by educating legislators about the negative impacts of the tax.

Congratulations and well done, everyone!
