Human Resources Announcements
Saint Paul Public Schools (SPPS) rejected a proposal by the Saint Paul Federation of Educators (SPFE) and Minnesota Teamsters 320 that would have cost the district $3.6 million in new healthcare contributions in exchange for the unions suspending their push to break a health insurance contract with HealthPartners.
Union leadership from the Saint Paul Federation of Educators (SPFE) and Minnesota Teamsters 320 shared a costly proposal in exchange for delaying their move to the Public Employees Insurance Program (PEIP).
Saint Paul Public Schools sent a second letter to request both union groups to delay a move to the Public Employees Insurance Program (PEIP) to Jan. 1, 2021.
In May, the Saint Paul Federation of Educators (SPFE) and Teamsters Local 320 voted to transition from Saint Paul Public Schools (SPPS) current healthcare provider, Health Partners, to the state’s Public Employees Insurance Program (PEIP). SPFE has expressed its desire that this change go into effect on January 1, 2020, with an open enrollment process this fall.
In light of that vote, the following information has been compiled to help all employees understand the process and potential outcomes of the vote.
