H & W Merger

Oct 26, 2016 (09:51:47)
There will be a meeting at the Terre Haute Labor Temple December 13, 2016 at 7:00 PM to answer questions and explain the new insurance plan. Please plan on attending and you can bring your spouse as well. There will be a represenative from the IHF there to provide information. After much study and a GREAT DEAL OF DEBATE AND QUESTIONS the Terre Haute Health & Welfare is moving forward with a merger with the International Health & Welfare Fund. This merger will benefit the majority of the Bloomington, Indianapolis and Terre Haute members and their families. Reach out to your field rep and ask questions.  Thank you, Ed Helton
Union Dues

Jan 08, 2016 (09:58:24)

UNION DUES

Union dues are fees that union members give to the union to help provide the resources to stand up for good jobs and benefits, decent working conditions and a better future for our families. Union members in the private industry earn 38 percent more on average than nonunion workers. They also receive 54 percent more in benefits.

Union dues help fund activities that give workers more power at the bargaining table, in the statehouse and in the community. Some of these activities include: Organizing expenses; Office equipment and regular administration expenses; Attorney’s to assist in negotiations, grievances and arbitration; Training; Research into companies and industries to gather information for negotiations and organizing; Accountants to analyze the company’s books.

Members also receive information about how dues money is spent by their local at monthly membership meetings. Local unions also file annual reports with the U. S. Department of Labor.

The benefits of job security, union negotiated wages, safety protections, insurance, pensions, and the support and backing of a union to fight for your rights make paying union dues well worth the money.

Something To Think About

Ten Ways To Kill A Union

  1. DON’T COME TO THE MEETINGS.
  2. BUT IF YOU DO COME - - COME LATE.
  3. IF THE WEATHER DOESN’T SUIT YOU, - - DON’T COME.
  4. IF YOU DO ATTEND A MEETING - - FIND FAULT WITH THE WORK OF THE OFFICERS AND OTHER MEMBERS.
  5. NEVER ACCEPT AN OFFICE: - - IT’S EASIER TO CRITICIZE THAN TO DO THINGS.
  6. NEVERTHELESS, GET SORE IF YOU ARE NOT APPOINTED ON A COMMITTEE: BUT, IF YOU ARE APPOINTED, - - DO NOT ATTEND THE COMMITTEE MEETINGS.
  7. IF ASKED BY THE PRESIDENT TO GIVE YOUR OPINION ON AN IMPORTANT MATTER, TELL HIM YOU HAVE NOTHING TO SAY - - AFTER THE MEETING TELL EVERYONE HOW THINGS SHOULD BE DONE.
  8. DO NOTHING MORE THAN IS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY; BUT WHEN OTHER MEMBERS ROLL UP THEIR SLEEVES, WILLINGLY AND UNSELFISHLY USING THEIR ABILITY TO HELP MATTERS ALONG - - HOWL THAT THE UNION IS BEING RUN BY A CLIQUE.
  9. IF YOUR LOCAL IS STRUGGLING FROM A FINANCIAL STANDPOINT TO MAINTAIN OFFICES IN YOUR BEHALF, BE SURE AND MUSTER ALL THE HELP YOU CAN - - TO VOTE AGAINST A DUES RAISE.
  10. DON’T BOTHER ABOUT NEW MEMBERS - - LET THE OTHER FELLOW DO IT.

COULD THIS BE YOU

What The Bricklayers Union Has To Offer It’s Members and The Signatory Contractors
 
1. A Living Wage

2.Health Insurance
    The BAC works hard to ensure that the members and their families have a Health Insurance plan. These plans ensure that the members and their families have insurance to fall back on during their time of need.
 
3. Pension Plan
    There are pension plans in place to help the members and their families get by in the retirement years.
 
4. Safety & Healthy Job Sites
    The BAC offers Health and Safety Classes to all its members to ensure each of them work safely and productively. (Classes offered- OHSA 10, OSHA 30, First Aid & CPR to name a few)
 
5. Upgrade and New Product Training
    Upgrade classes are available for all members of BAC Local 4 IN/KY. There are new masonry materials coming on the market every day.
