|Inside Commercial Contract Settlement|
Contract Settlement with $15 Per Hour Raise Over 3 Years:
The 2nd Highest in Local 332’s History
Our inside contract, effective June 1, 2021–May 31, 2024, was ratified by the membership by a vote of 759 to 383, or 66% to 34%. It was the largest participation 332 has ever had voting on a contract, because we did it online. For full details of the three-year agreement, click here.
The highlight is the $15 wage increase over three years. This was the second largest increase in the local’s history, and a win given the pandemic and shift away from constructing new office buildings. The allocation is as follows:
Other Contract Highlights Include the Strengthening of Important Language to Protect Our Work
Stronger Reverse Book Layoff Language: Supervisory capacity shall be defined as having a minimum of three workers under their direct supervision, unless only one supervisor is present on the project. This means that someone can’t simply be called a foreman. They must be working in a supervisor capacity.
Expanded Overtime: To compensate members for time away from your families, all Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays shall be paid at double (2x) the rate of pay instead of just time and a half on Saturdays.
Updated Tool List: For the duration of the agreement, the value of the tool list shall be assessed at $850.00, including tax. The tool list replacement value will be re-evaluated prior to all future contracts. The list for reimbursements has been modernized, which was long overdue.
Paid Parking: Parking reimbursement will move from a six block radius to an eight block radius. The quarter mile rule is still in effect and is unchanged.
