TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS FOR MEBA MEMBERS
Effective August 3, 2009, the Trustees of the M.E.B.A. Medical and Benefits Plan and the M.E.B.A. Training Plan have arranged to have an in-house Travel Coordinator provide travel services to Participants attending the M.E.B.A. Diagnostic Centers and the Calhoon M.E.B.A. Engineering School.
Participants must book all flights through the Plans' Travel Coordinator by calling them toll free. The toll free telephone number is (877) 324-6322. Normal operating hours for the Travel Coordinator are generally Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m., Eastern Standard Time (6:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Pacific Standard Time).
Use of the in-house Travel Coordinator is mandatory for all airline arrangements for travel to the Diagnostic Centers and to the School. Failure to use the Plans' Travel Coordinator may result in the denial of your air travel expenses. The former travel agency should no longer be used.
