Joint Health Care Committee

The Joint Health Care Committee (JHCC) is an advising body that discusses proposed changes to the UA Choice health plans - including cost and plan design. The JHCC has seats for UNAC, Local 6070, Fairbanks Fire Fighters Association, UA management, and Staff Alliance with representatives voicing the opinions of their groups. Committee members listen to recommendations and supporting data from the Benefits and HR Accounting departments on proposed changes and may pass motions of recommendation for consideration by the Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO). The JHCC meets once a month on the third Wednesday from 1pm  to 3pm via Zoom.
