Healthcare Reform

Grassroots Efforts

We have been active and instrumental in the tremendous grassroots efforts that brought Act 48 to Vermont: Act 48: An act pertaining to a universal and unified health system. We continue to work closely with other unions and organizations such as Vermont Workers' Center, Vermont Nurse Practitioners' Association, Vermont State Employees Union, Migrant Justice, RU12?, Outright Vermont, Vermont Cares to ensure everyone has access to quality health care.


Green Mountain Care Board Advisory Council

Two of our members were appointed to the Green Mountain Care Board Advisory Council, Deb Kutzko and Mari Cordes. The Green Mountain Care Board Advisory Council, as required by Act 48, advises the Green Mountain Care Board on policy issues benefit design, payment reform, quality, public engagement and more.
