Workers shouldn't need to worry about financing their well-being. The IUOE and its partnered contractors place access to quality healthcare and a secure retirement as top priorities. From a health plan where members incur no monthly premium, to participation in the second largest multi-employer, defined benefit pension fund in the United States, Local 9 members can rest assured that their present and future are on solid ground. These benefits, unlike many found throughout the industry, come at no cost to the member. Contributions to healthcare and pension are payments made in addition to hourly wages and are not deducted from the workers' hourly earnings. Many of the signatory contractors utilize these benefits for their entire staff and find the value in not having to administer healthcare and retirement funds themselves.
*Accruel of these benefits start from date of hire. Specific information on rates, eligibility, vesting, terms, limitations, and all other information is made available to accepted applicants, apprentices, contractors, and members and will be bound by the relevant trust agreement(s), bargaining agreement(s), and board(s) of trustees.
