Work in the Lafayette Chapter has been great all year! The Lafayette Chapter has finished the The Marq (101 Main), Benton Central, St. Elizabeth Hospital, and the Ag Science, Centennial Mall and Flex Labs buildings at Purdue. We have several projects in the works for winter as well. James Scharer Masonry is working on the new West Lafayette School, Monticello Schools, Lafayette Schools and Maple Crest School in Kokomo, while Ziolkowski will be performing the work at Glen Acres and Cumberland Schools additions. Kingery has work at IVY Tech and Frankfort factories. While the major PCC work at Purdue ended when the new school year started in August we still have plenty of work going on with BSI, NEW Group and Atlas.
The Market Recovery Grant Program you voted into existence has been a key element in securing work for the membership. The membership should be proud to know that hundreds of thousands of man hours including wages and benefits have gone back into the pockets of BAC Local #4 members. In the Lafayette area we have awarded market recovery grants on The Marq, West Lafayette School, Benton Central Band Addition, and Glenn Acres School Addition. Now we are currently working to try and secure the large private multi story Purdue jobs. This is a great program that works for YOU!
As for the benefits, the Bricklayers of Indiana local pension will make a decent gain, but the final percentage isn’t compiled just yet, so I’ll let you know as soon as the report comes out. The IHF insurance plan is working great as well. This is the best insurance plan we have ever had and getting better as new benefits keep trickling out! The ability to pick a plan that is tailored to you personally was a welcome addition. Now that most of the state is under the IHF there is a full time insurance representative stationed at the Indianapolis Union Hall. Her name is Lisa Geralds and you can reach her at 317-334-1311. Feel free to call her with any insurance inquiry’s you may have.
Don’t forget if you haven’t signed up for the Member Portal you need too.
