MCO and the Office of the State Employer are preparing for contract negotiations which will take place this summer and fall. Like in past years, the MCO Executive Board, which also serves as the bargaining team, wants members’ input before negotiations begin.
A link was emailed to all MCO members’ personal, home email addresses today. The survey is for dues-paying members only; therefore, we are not posting the link on our website, which is accessible to all. If you are a member and did not get the link by email, please provide or update your personal, home email address or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note, MCO will not send emails on certain sensitive topics to state email addresses.
This user-friendly survey will only take 5-15 minutes to complete. Please note, you cannot save your work and return to the survey later. The deadline to complete the survey is 11:59 p.m. July 12.
The survey will request identifying information from you so your membership status can be verified. However, your responses will not be associated with your identity.
Some important topics covered in the survey include health care. You will also have space to provide additional thoughts or information that might help the bargaining team.
In 2016, the first year we tried an online survey, our response rate was 22%, which is 8% higher than the 2015 paper bargaining surveys. We’d like to push our return rate even higher this year to engage even more members in the bargaining process. Broad member input enables the Executive Board to bargain the best contract possible.
If you have any questions about the online survey, please email email@example.com.
Thank you, members, for your feedback. The bargaining team values your input and looks forward to hearing from you.
