Friday July 9th, Local 1237 members will have a wage allocation for the January 1, 2022 wage increase. During the July 6th Monthly Membership Meeting (via Zoom) we will discuss several options on how to allocate the $3.00 increase. We owe monies for maintenance of benefits and other funds. Here is the breakdown;
- $0.25 for Health and Welfare increase. If the actual increase is less than $0.25 the remainder will go to wages.
- $0.05 for IUPAT Administrative Dues per Section 18 (a) of the International Constitution.
- $0.15 for the IUPAT Pension per the General Executive Board Resolution #7.
- $0.06 for Wage Equality.
- $0.05 for the JATTF.
- Please note that as of June 1, 2021, Local 1237 By-Laws were ratified by the members, Article 13.04 Section I (ii) increases the hourly Benefit Fund contribution goes from 3% to 6%.
We need to allocate $0.56 for the above mentioned and this is non-negotiable. That leaves us with $2.44 to allocate as we wish. I hope to see you all at the Monthly Membership Meeting (via Zoom) and the wage allocation here at the local union hall on July 9th from 12 pm to 5 pm for the drive thru wage allocation. If you have any questions or comments you can reach me at (916)407-8279.
