DENTAL AND VISION UPDATE
As you all may be aware, as of October 1, 2014, the New York City District Council will be implementing Dental coverage back to members through Aetna. When this new coverage takes effect, Local 926 will no longer be providing members dental coverage through Cigna because we are unable to hold two dental plans simultaneously. Although Dental coverage will no longer be offered through Local 926, Vision coverage will be provided separately. The Executive Board approved vision coverage through VSP for all Full Active Members and their families, as long as their dues are paid within the first week of the quarter.

Unofficial Results from 2014 EST Election
With all ballots now counted by American Arbitration Association, Local 1556 member Joe Geiger is the unofficial winner of the special election to fill the seat of Executive Secretary Treasurer (EST) for the NYC District Council of Carpenters. Unofficial results have Geiger winning with 3127 votes, with his opponent Greg Kelty, a member of Local 157, with 1488 votes. As the new EST, Geiger will lead the District Council for the next year.
“I’d like to thank all of the brothers and sisters for their support as well as Mr. Kelty for running a spirited campaign,” said Geiger. “As the EST, I will properly fulfill the duties of this office as well as act on and promote what is in the best interest of our membership and their families.”
Geiger ran on a platform of leading the DC back to self-governance through more transparency, shop steward protections, open lines of communication and accountability. As a 30-year member, Geiger has served as president of Local Unions 1556 and the former 1536 and held positions of warden, treasurer, and trustee.
After certification of the results by the federal appointed Review Officer (RO), Geiger will be installed at the next meeting of the Delegate Body scheduled for February 12.
