The Eyeopener reports the Ryerson Students’ Union is deciding on its next health and dental insurance contract.
The RSU is divided between a pro-CFS Executive and a pro-independence Council. Many issues at the RSU involve some element of the CFS debate and insurance is no difference.
The pro-CFS side wants to sign with the CFS insurance plan, the pro-independence side wants to sign with Gallivan and Associates.
I’m not a fan of either insurance plan.
Frankly, with how lucrative student insurance plans seem to be, I question if students are actually receiving enough return on the money they put into these plans.
The amount of back scratching that occurs with these contracts is disgusting.
However, if a student union is going to sign a contact, the least they can do is get a quote.
The fact that the pro-independence side is pushing for a non-tendered agreement reflects poorly on them and they should immediately reverse their position.
