City Council to Consider Insurance Benefits for Civil Union Partners of City Employees

It’s the start of a new year, and Springfield still does not have a mechanism in place for providing health benefits to the civil union partners of city employees.


But that could change soon.


This week, aldermen will consider a proposal to update the benefits package for union and non-union city employees and retirees … including a provision to provide health coverage for civil union partners.


An earlier vote to provide civil union benefits was tossed out because it was improperly taken in closed session.


City officials say no city employee is currently seeking benefits for a civil union partner.
