Health Care 2013 – will the Chronicle be fair?


My name is Autumn Grace. I am a former member of the Chronicle family and presently an employee advocate and organizer for the Pacific Media Workers Guild.

I am still covered under the Chronicle health care plan and have been a Kaiser member for as long as I can remember. My son was born at Kaiser and has been cared for by an incredibly personable and experienced pediatrician. As a single mother and a student, having affordable health care is critical to keeping my family healthy.

Having the Media Guild Health And Welfare Trust Fund managing the health plan will allow me to continue to have coverage. I feel that Hearst should continue to provide AFFORDABLE health care for its employees as well as the Guild staff so we can all continue to work together in making the Chronicle a great place to work.
