As you know the administrative staff of the Union and the Fund are working remotely effective March 23, 2020. We continue to monitor the staff and services to members.
We are now advising you that one of the Union’s employees who experienced symptoms of infection has tested positive for the COVID-19 infection. The employee in question was in the office during the week preceding the start of remote working.
In light of the above, please take the necessary precautions, including contacting your health provider.

How do you calculate the new helper’s rate for a member under the RAB agreement?
Helpers employed by a RAB employer and new to the industry start at 70% of the current full helper rate, provided you are enrolled in the Training Fund. Helpers generally get a 5% increase every six months. Typically, helpers also get a raise on January 1 of each year, because the full helper’s rate increases then, according to the collective bargaining agreement.
You can request a rates and dues sheet. Please call the Union Office at (212) 331-1800. You can also visit the Contact Us page for more information.
