Vaccine Eligibility Update from NYS (March 15, 2021)
March 15, 2021
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Governor Andrew Cuomo announced the expansion of the COVID-19 vaccine eligibility for New Yorkers that are “essential in-person public-facing building service workers.”
Under the new guidance, Local 94 members in our commercial building locations will be eligible to begin receiving the vaccine on March 17th, 2021.
We urge our members and their families to get vaccinated to help protect against COVID-19 and do our part to end the pandemic. Starting on March 17th, you can make an appointment to obtain the COVID-19 vaccine at https://covid19vaccine.health.ny.gov/ or at https://vaccinefinder.nyc.gov/.

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.
