Let’s Clear This Up

Posted January 26, 2024

Brothers and Sisters,

It has come to my attention that some members think that the new Master Agreement and Sacramento Addendum goes into effect January 1, 2024. The wage increase and new wage schedule went into effect on the first of January, but the rest of the contract went into effect August 1, 2023. So, the increase in sub pay from $45.00 to $75.00, was effective August 1, 2023, and shift work is time and 25%. I have added several changes to the Sacramento Addendum below. I have also included the new wage schedule and DDO/Holiday schedule. If you have any questions or would like to talk, please call me (916) 407-8279.

Article 9, Section 2(b) shall be amended to read as follows:  Shift work shall be paid at twenty-five percent (25%) above the Base Wage.

Article 10, Section 2b (1) shall be amended to read as follows: (1) Journeyman shall be paid pursuant to the attached Wage Schedule A and receive three dollar ($3.00) per hour increase to the Total Package on January 1, 2024, a three dollar and twenty-five cent ($3.35) increase to the Total Package on January 1, 2025, a three dollar seventy-five cent ($3.75) increase to the Total Package on January 1, 2026, and a four dollar ($4.00) increase to the Total Package on January 1, 2027 of this Agreement and any extensions thereof.

Article 27 shall be amended to read as follows:  

1.  TRAVEL TIME: Employees required to jobsite report more than sixty (60) miles from the point of dispatch (employee’s home or individual Employer’s shop) as determined by the individual Employer, shall receive Wages and Benefits for all time spent traveling beyond sixty (60) miles from the point of dispatch to the jobsite and return.  Employees reporting in their private vehicles to a jobsite more than sixty (60) miles from the point of dispatch, shall also receive mileage at the current IRS rate per mile for all miles traveled outside of the sixty (60) miles. (Mileage and drive time is to be based on google maps).  Mileage will be paid on a per vehicle basis.  This system is based on employees reporting to their jobsite at their regular start time and working on the job until their regular quitting time.  Travel from jobsite to jobsite in a private vehicle shall be considered as hours worked and mileage will be reimbursed at the current IRS rate per mile. All travel commencing after reporting to the Employers shop to and from the jobsite will be considered as hours worked and use of the employee’s vehicle will be reimbursed at the current IRS rate per mile.  At no time shall the employee be allowed to transport the Employer’s material or equipment in his own vehicle.  

2.  SUBSISTENCE (a)  When employees are required to live away from their personal place of residence, in order to report for work when and where directed by the Employer, each employee shall receive lodging, or an amount equal to reasonable lodging, in advance, plus subsistence in the amount of seventyfive dollars ($75.00) per day, in advance, on a separate check.
