We Win!!! (sorta)
If your department is anything like mine, more than 50% of the people you know have gotten almost nothing done this week, scrambling to find out about the Freelancers Union, pricing benefit plans, scheduling last minute InTuition classes, and going on a veritable bender of doctor and dentist visits.
Well, it looks like (for now) we've got our REAL medical and dental back at the same price (Or, as the email said, 'The Aetna plan has certain advantages that may make it the preferred option for many of our freelance and temporary employees' HAHHAHAHAHA!).
Still, there are a few remaining questions, among them:
-what about our 401k?
-and our 5 paid days off?
-will InTuition ever come back?
-what about our brethren who started sometime in '07 and haven't qualified yet?
-will we lose more in February, when the payroll changes take effect?
-why the eff did they do this in the first place?
-and most importantly, WILL WE FINALLY BE STAFF?
More to come, as we get it.
