Open Enrollment ends June 7!

The Labor Management Benefits Committee added new options for disability insurance. These changes mean that during the City of Portland’s open enrollment period – now through June 7, 2019 – you may elect or increase coverage without having to submit medical history, even if previously declined.

  • If you are currently enrolled in Additional Life for an amount less than $300,000, you may elect to increase your coverage by up to $50,000
  • If you are not currently enrolled in Additional Life, you may elect coverage up to $50,000
  • You may elect or increase Dependents Life for your spouse or domestic partner up to $10,000, not to exceed $30,000
  • You may increase your Long Term Disability (LTD) and Short Term Disability (STD) to the buy-up options

Portland members get more vacation time!

In July 2018, Portland City Council approved an ordinance that will change the vacation accrual policy for all City employees, giving everyone more vacation leave starting in 2019! This initiative is due in large part to the dedication of PROTEC17 member leaders who have worked hard over the last eight months to put together a comprehensive overhaul of the accrual system. This was a top priority of our members in last year’s contract survey.

So, how much more vacation will YOU get in 2019?  See this table!
