West Salem Looks For Health Insurance
Superintendent Troy Gunderson says health insurance language was written into recently signed contracts for teachers and support staff. And he claims it will save a lot of money for the district.
WEA Trust, the nonprofit company started 40 years ago by the state's largest teachers union, currently insures employees in about two-thirds of Wisconsinschool districts. The company's market dominance has dropped in recent years, although not as much as some school officials who complain about the company's costs would like.
