Negotiations have concluded, and the attached rates have been agreed upon by NECA and Local 26. Please share these updated wage benefit summaries with anyone in your firm who may need to be aware of changes to payroll, paid leave accrual, and current rates.
Of particular note are the following changes to the PTO accrual and usage terms:
The accrual rate will be increasing as follows:
- Effective June 7, 2021 – for each hour worked, .027 of an hour.
- Effective December 6, 2021 – for each hour worked, .031 of an hour.
- Effective June 6, 2022 – for each hour worked, .035 of an hour.
- Effective December 5, 2022 – for each hour worked, .039 of an hour.
Hours will accrue until a total of one hundred (100) hours have accrued. At one hundred hours accrued, accrual will stop until total hours are less than one hundred (100), at which point hours will begin to accrue again. Accrued paid leave hours will be utilized in blocks of four (4) hours.
When the employee takes paid time off under this Section, for any reason, he/she must notify the foreman on the job one week before the absence, or as soon as possible after learning of the event. If the foreman is unavailable, the employee will notify the employer’s office. If an employee plans to use a week of PTO, they must inform the employer one month in advance of taking the time off.
As always, the Chapter is here to answer any questions from our members.
