Business Manager’s Report
Dear Brothers & Sisters
Our work picture for 2017 is looking great. In addition to our members, we have a few hundred travelers working and full employment should last through the year.
In our continuing effort to manage the Local Union and its funds,we are making the following recommendation to re-allocate the total package of the Commercial, Maintenance, and Industrial Agreement.
We have been fortunate the past 3 years that we haven’t had to increase the Health and Welfare contribution. However, that is no longer the case. We will need to increase the contribution by .95 cents per hour, this year. Also, due to on-going problems with TD Bank, along with re-evaluating the work load of the general office- we would like to delete the Credit Union check off of 6%. These recommendations will amend the 2017-2020 agreement.
I look forward to seeing you at the Notified Meeting, Thursday, February 9th, 6 P.M. for the first reading on re-allocating the total package.
LOCAL UNION NO.654, IBEW
