The current Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Santa Monica Firefighters Local 1109 IAFF (Local 1109) does not expire until June 30, 2010.† The City and Local 1109 agreed to open the MOU to revise Section 3.01 (Health Insurance), Subsection A (Medical Insurance).† Currently, Local 1109 members are making a $35.00/month contribution into a Post Employment Health Plan (PEHP) and are also paying $150.00/month towards the cost of their medical insurance premiums.† With the revision to the MOU, the City will make the $35.00/month contribution into the PEHP, and Local 1109 will increase their payments towards the cost of their medical insurance premiums by $35.00/month.
The amendment to the MOU will have no budget/financial impact to the City since the Cityís contribution into the Post Employment Health Plan (PEHP) will be offset by the increase in Local 1109ís contribution towards the cost of their medical insurance premiums.
