Union Benefits and the Power of Collective Bargaining

What is a Union?

A union is a group of workers, working together to protect their wages and standards. The wages and standards in this area have been established through collective bargaining. The members of the union work together to protect the good conditions that have been established for the area.

Fair Wages and Benefits through Collective Bargaining

A union flooring installer has the opportunity to work for fair wages and benefits. Our workers are under a contract. They know when they are going to receive raises and how much they will be earning, because their wage is established through collective bargaining.

A Variety of Membership Benefits

Our members benefit from high wages, world-class benefits and the resources developed in the course of over a hundred years of experience in the construction trades. Membership offers an impressive wage and fringe benefit package. This includes your hourly wages, a Health and Welfare Plan, a Union Pension Program and a Carpenter’s Savings Plan. Accommodating wage adjustments are made for overtime and holiday work.

If you’re an apprentice, you achieve regular pay raises as you learn your trade; full Union Mechanics receive dependable, generous wage increases according to your Union contract. Our contract ensures fair wages, hours and working conditions and promotes good relations between you, the Union Craftsman and your employer. This contract guarantees a mutually beneficial work environment and a multi-year agreement.

Health Coverage

Health coverage is provided for our members, which supplies the member and his or her family with a major medical, dental and eye care and a prescription plan. Medical coverage continues for the member and spouse throughout the member’s retirement.

Pension and Annuity

Two of the most important benefits are the pension and annuity.

For every hour a member works, money is placed into his or her pension, annuity and 401(a) plans. These plans are paid through employer contributions and no money is withheld from the employee’s paycheck.

It is sometimes difficult for people to save money for their future or their children’s education, due to the demands of everyday life. By becoming a member of our Union, your future can be more secure!
