GEO members flyer outside MA healthcare cost containment hearing in Pittsfield, MA

As part of GEO’s response to attacks on our health insurance by the UMass Amherst administration, we joined coalition partners at a hearing of the Joint Committee on Health Care Financing at City Hall in Pittsfield, MA.

GEO members Derek Doughty (Anthropology), Sarah Finn (Writing Program), Jocelyn Silverlight (Social Justice Education), Thomas Herndon (Economics), and Roberto Garcia-Ceballos (Social Justice Education) joined UAW 2322 President Ron Patenaude and UAW 2322 Servicing Representative Ryan Quinn to flyer outside the event and to discuss the changes in the UMass Amherst Student Health Insurance Plan, and how those changes could be a model for cost containment state-wide.
