The premiums of WellPoint customers are undermining the rights of WellPoint customers.
WellPoint, along with the Koch brothers, has given massive donations to the political campaigns of right-wing politicians like Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels. These premiums are funding anti-worker workers efforts, but who funds the premiums?
Union workers have bargained over rising health care costs with their employers for years, often sacrificing wage increases to make sure their health care coverage remained strong. And all workers pay for their premiums through their employment.
Join us in calling on [independent board member] to vote against political giving at WellPoint’s upcoming shareholder meeting. By undermining workers’ rights, they are fighting against the very people who supply them with record profits, year after year.
