Local 1621 Glaziers,

The Joint Eboard met on May 17th to discuss the options that will be presented for the Glaziers upcoming January 1st, 2023 raise. It is very important that you show up on June 11th from 7am to 3pm to vote to adopt the IUPAT Pension Rehab Alternate Schedules. It is the Joint Eboard recommendation to vote for Alternate 2 Schedule See Attached. Alternate 2 IUPAT Pension Schedule would keep in place the Benefit Payable as early as age 55 after completing of the 18,000 Benefit Hours. Also keeps the Special Early Retirement Age of 60 and 54,000 hours. Also the Alternate 2 provides for a more favorable Benefit accrual rate each year known as the VBAR of up to 1.5 percent and no more possibility of a zero accrual rate year.  This Alternate Schedule affects over 200 Local 1621 members in the next 5 to 10 years. So whether your Glazing career started in your 20’s or you are planning to retire in the next 5 to 10 years by getting close to age 55. This vote will affect every single Glazier in some way or another with the higher accrual rate of return each year. We need the membership to show up and vote for this Allocation. Make your voice heard and show up to anyone of the below locations. Thank you
