In the article "A big freeze," which appeared on the front page of Tuesday's edition of the TIMES NEWS, it states that Commissioner Wayne Nothstein, chairman, said that 15 members of the AFSCME professional union will have to pay a co-pay for medical expenses while non-union employees will not.

Nothstein clarified his statement on Wednesday, saying that the 15 union members who will get a 3 percent raise per their contract, will have to pay the increase in their co-pay for medical benefits; while non-union employees, who will not receive a raise in 2013, will not have to pay an increase, but will still pay a co-pay.

Carbon County's medical benefit co-pays go toward prescriptions, doctor visits, and other medical coverage.
