LLNS is unfair

Anonymously contributed:

A letter to the editor regarding LLNL retiree benefit changes has been published in the Nov. 6 issue of The Independent Newspaper, on page 5.
Find it at

This policy change is such a blatant and obvious example of a LLNS management system that has lost it's moral and ethical compass , that further letters to newspapers or congress people could re-open the whole privatization issue at LLNL and LANL. Now is your chance to make a difference.

I wish you all the luck in the world. The best we can hope for is that Obama passes nation health care while he in for the next eight years. If not most will have to work until the are 65 and get on medicare which is basically socialized medicine anyway. If you haven't figure this all out for yourself I'll enlighten you. part of the reason to get you off the UC pension plan and onto a 401K was to assure you have to work until you are 65 in hopes you'll never get to collect SS or Medicare therefore leave it behind for all of those who never paid in or are immigrants from foreign countries to assure a one party government. You need to look and understand the big picture people. It's not about YOU, it's all about them and their sheep. So just hope in the next eight years they haven't figured out that euthanasia of anyone over 75 will save money too. After all that's what really important isn't it

You think LLNS gives a hoot about what the employees and retirees think? Think again.

What part of "for-profit" management at the NNSA labs don't you understand?

Perhaps you could enlighten the rest of us as to where he is wrong, (and where I am misreading the enrollment materials).

can still have Kaiser for one year. During that period Kaiser and the new health insurance admin. will work to come up with a solution which will allow current kaiser members to continue with their current coverage with changes (insured will have to pay for some portion of coverage beyond medicare benefit). With the money that these folks get from the health care admin. they will be able to continue Kaiser with very little financial impact. That is a far cry from claiming everyone looses group health care benefits.
