Tools and information for Union Contractors

Attention All Contractors!

Please Stop All 401(K) and Savings Payroll Deductions

Please stop all 401(K) and Savings Payroll Deductions for all hours worked June 1st, 2104 forward. The 401(K) Program will no longer allow for elective deferrals and the Savings Program will become voluntary. If you inadvertently withhold 401(K) or savings for hours worked after this period, you are required to reimburse that member because of payroll taxes. Members are required to complete the New Pay Deferral Election Form if they wish to continue with the savings program.

New Voluntary Savings and Union PAC Fund

The Savings Plan is no longer mandatory and there is a newly formed Union PAC Fund. All members are allowed to contribute to voluntary Savings Program and/or the Union PAC Fund. Please click on the following link for more detailed information:
