TRICARE, unions, and the SSA

January 19, 2011 — Guests and topics abound on this week’s edition of Your Turn with Mike Causey.

Federal Times editor Steven Watkins and senior writer Sean Reilly will discuss the strained union relationship with the White House. Then, Federal Times Pentagon reporter Andrew Tilghman will bring us up to speed on Defense’s TRICARE program, possible premium changes and coverage of children (dependent or not) up to age 26.

Host Mike Causey will also be joined by AFGE’s Witold Skwierczynski about contract issues at the Social Security Administration. Non-supervisory employees at SSA have been working more than one year without a contract. Skwierczynski is AFGE’s chief negotiator. We’ll ask him about progress (if any) and what happens next.
