Due to the diligence of CWA Local 1060 President Brian Reilly, some Nokia retirees will be receiving a refund check in the mail! After learning from Reilly that a retiree suspected that there was an error in how much he was being charged for health care, the T&T office requested that Nokia conduct an audit. The audit revealed that some retirees were overpaying for their health care. Refunds for the affected individuals ranged from as little as $38 to as much as $4,300. The underlying issue which created the problem has been corrected.
