August 14, 1952
To All Harvester Employee Eligible to Participate
in the Liberalized Hea1th—Welfare Plans:
In my letter of June 26, 1952, I told you about the liberalizations the
Company planned to make in its health—welfare plans. I also advised you that
these liberalizations could be made effective only upon approval of the Wage
Stabilization Board. I am now pleased to announce that this approval has been
received. We can now proceed to make the liberalizations effective for all
employes not represented by a labor union and those employes represented by
certain labor unions which have signed the agreement with the Company on the
liberalized health—welfare plans.
In order that you may better understand these plans, enclosed are four
pamphlets describing in detail the new benefits to which you will be entitled:
1. Group Hospital Plan
The new X—ray and laboratory benefit as described in the pamphlet entitled
"Group Hospital Plan — Diagnostic X—Ray and Laboratory Expense Benefits" will
be added to the Group Hospital Plan without additional cost to you and will
become effective on August 18, 1952.
2. Disability Benefits Plan
lf you are a member of the Employee' Benefit Association, or if not a
member and have been with the Company for at least three months and become a
member of the Employee' Benefit Association, you be eligible for the supple-
mental disability benefits as outlined in the pamphlet entitled "Supplemental
Disability Benefits Plan." You will be contacted during the week beginning
August 18, 1952, for the purpose of enrolling in this plan. It will become
effective on August 18, 1952, provided that at least 75% of the eligible
employes subscribe for membership. (Employes in the States of California,
New Jersey, New York, and Rhode Island will receive an outline of the new
disability plan applying to their particular state.)
5. Group Term Life Insurance Plan
All non-managerial employes may secure additional life insurance as out-
lined in the pamphlet entitled "Group Term Life Insurance Plan." This new plan
is the same as the Group Term Life Insurance Plan which has been in effect for
managerial employes since March 1, 1950. You will be contacted during the week
beginning August 18, 1952, for the purpose of enrolling in this plan. It will
also become effective on August 18, 1952, provided that at least 75% of the
eligible employes subscribe for membership.
