Tools and information for Union Contractors
Please note that the Data Center phone number has changed. The new number is (312) 226-4200.
In March of 2012, a letter was sent to all signatory contractors stipulating that monthly reports and payments postmarked by the 15th but not received until after the 15th will be considered delinquent.
This change was implemented as of April 2012. Please ensure that all reports and checks are mailed so that they will be received and processed prior to the 15th of the month. Submitting the payments for weekly and monthly reports by ACH through the Contractor Reporting Tool (WebCore) can avoid any problems that may occur with delays in the postal system and can help your office avoid delinquencies.
If you continue to mail your payment, please make checks payable to:
Plumbers’ Local 130 Contribution Account,
and mail the checks to the following Lock Box Address:
Plumbers’ Local 130 Contribution Account
P.O. Box 94459
Chicago, Illinois 60690-4459

All Local 130 Contractor Remittance Reporting is required to be done through WebCore, the Local 130 electronic reporting tool. If you do not have web core installed, please call the Data Center (312) 226-4200 to schedule an appointment for installation and training.
Please inform members who participate in the savings program that if they extract all their money from their savings account, that account could be deactivated after 45 days for inactivity. If this happens, that members savings contributions would be rejected by the bank and a new account would have to be created for that member. This would result in members not having access to their savings dollars for, potentially, 2 of more reporting periods. By leaving two of more dollars in the account, this will not happen.
All contractor reporting is required to be posted through the WebCore Contractor Reporting Tool. All active Contractors are now reporting using this tool.
If you are not yet using WebCore, please call us immediately to schedule installation and training. This takes 15 to 20 minutes and is done over the phone and the internet. This will not require an office visit.
