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.
