The Rhode Island Supreme Court has rejected an attempt by the union representing Providence teachers to control health insurance premiums paid by retired city teachers.
In an opinion authored by Justice Maureen McKenna Goldberg, the court upheld a Superior Court decision that ruled that the union’s contract with the Providence School Board allowed the board to charge retired teachers more for health care premiums than active teachers.
