MSU To Pay Out Bulk Of $7M Health Reimbursements

Posted: Updated:

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan State University soon will pay out the bulk of $7 million in negotiated health care reimbursements to thousands of union workers.

School spokesman Jason Cody says the payments of more than $1,000 each will show up Friday in paychecks for employees paid every other week, and Jan. 31 for those paid monthly.

The payments, however, will be smaller than the $1,200 originally promised because of a lawsuit filed by a retiree last month. Wayne Cass, the former chairman of the Coalition of Labor Organizations at MSU, sued in the Michigan Court of Claims.

Cody says the school plans to vigorously defend against the lawsuit.
