Chiera Joins School Employees Health Benefits Plan Design Committee

In addition to serving on the Governor’s health insurance task force, AFTNJ President Donna Chiera has been named to the State Health Benefits Plan Design Committee.

The committee must approve changes to state health insurance plans. It is comprised of six members of management appointed by the Governor, and six members of unions, representing the AFL- CIO unions and the uniform unions.

“My goal is to continue to advocate for high-quality health insurance and lower costs,” said Chiera. “I am joining the union members of the committee who have been working hard to identify efficiencies and innovate in delivery of healthcare to public workers and their families.”
