A message from the Board of Trustees
of the District 1199C Legal Services Trust
to the Employees covered by the Trust
The District 1199C Legal Services Trust has been established jointly by District 1199C and the various employers in the health service industry in response to the need for such services for the employees represented by the Union.
In order to respond to that need the trustees have developed a plan of benefits and services which are fully described in the District 1199C Legal Services Plan documents.
To assist you in understanding how the plan works, we are pleased to present this website outlining the plan’s provisions.
We urge you to familiarize yourself with this information so that you will know how to proceed if you or one of your dependents ever requires any of the legal services available to you.
