Dear Members of Local 83, I would like to remind everyone about the Painters contract ending this June, and It’s coming up quickly! I will be visiting jobsites to get input from you to see what you would like in the new contract. But the best way to make sure your ideas are heard is […]February 02, 2023
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.
