(Unionized Municipal Employers)
A Municipal Employer may commence the Section 21/23 process by notifying each of its collective bargaining units and the Retired State, County & Municipal Employees Association at least 7 days in advance of its intent to vote to implement the process, and by subsequently notifying them of the results of that vote. For further information on required notifications and processes in this period, see the Administration and Finance regulations posted (See Additional Resources).
A Section 23 Agreement must include contribution ratios and the signatures of representatives of the Municipal Employer as well as a majority of the Public Employee Committee.
After a 30 day negotiation period, if no agreement results, a Municipal Employer may submit its proposal to a municipal health insurance review panel made up of a municipal representative, a representative of the Public Employee Committee, and a third impartial member identified with the assistance of Administration and Finance. If the panel finds that the proposal meets statutory and regulatory guidelines around savings and mitigation, the panel may order the transfer of subscribers to the GIC under Section 23.
