Bargaining in the wake of the Affordable Care Act
It is important to be familiar with the provisions of the Affordable Care Act and their implications for bargaining. The AFT has developed a number of resources to assist our affiliates as they bargain for health benefits in the wake of healthcare reform. If you are currently bargaining or preparing to bargain and would like additional information and support on bargaining healthcare reform-related issues, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
AFT’s resources for bargainers include:
- Presentation slides that explain the basics of the ACA and its implications for bargaining
- A set of scenarios to help negotiators consider possible bargaining responses to the ACA
- A guide to the ACA’s exchange subsidies and employer penalties
- A brief summary of grandfathered status under the ACA
