A GSU member contacted GSU regarding an issue with benefits. The employee had given notice of termination, but in the week leading up to their retirement date they used their benefits for medical issues. The insurance company rejected the claims. Lawrence Maier contacted the employer and, after going through all of the facts, it was determined that all of the bills were for the period during which the member was still an employee. The correct payments were sent to the employee.
Make sure you take full advantage of your benefits before retiring or terminating your employment. Don't wait until the last minute, as this can create problems. And for those with a Health Care Spending Account, don't forget to claim what is allowed under the plan.

Do you have questions about retiring or terminating your employment?
Call a GSU staff rep.
Your inquiry will be treated with the strictest confidentiality. GSU staff rep services are provided to you as part of your union dues and there is no additional charge for assisting you. Contact information for our staff reps is available here

Congratulations to Gwen Culbertson and Jill Larochelle - our latest ticket winners. Jill and Gwen have each won two tickets to cheer on the Riders when they take on the Argonauts on July 29.

We had two contests running last week.

Gwen won our Tuesday Members' Memo draw by telling us their favourite summer food was the mighty roasted hot dog. Hopefully someone buys her a stadium hot dog for her birthday this Saturday. 

Our GSU web page contest asked members to tell us what their summer happy place was, and Jill won our draw with her happy place being on the beach.  

Thank you to everyone who played along.

Watch for another chance to win, soon. Go, Riders, Go!

Are you taking time for a summer vacation? 
Everyone needs a break from work, and a summer vacation is the perfect opportunity to escape the daily grind and spend some time relaxing and recharging. 

Whether you spend your time with a book in your back yard, camping with family at the lake, or attending a festival in the park, you are doing yourself a favour. Vacation is good for you!
