Brothers and Sisters, The Sacramento Sierra Building and Construction Trades Council has been working hard to try to get a Community Workforce Training Agreement with the City of Elk Grove. We have confirmed that the CWTA will be on the City Council’s Agenda on October 12, 2022. The meeting will begin at 6pm at 8400 […]September 26, 2022
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.
