ACT NOW - SAVE YOUR PENSION

A new plan is being proposed in the Senate that would raise taxes on your retirement by 10% and place additional detrimental fees on the entire plan.  This is to "rescue" other pension plans that have already been affected.  You can see International President Lonnie Stephenson's statement here.  Please contact your Senators and tell them to stop this proposal and protect your hard earned retirement benefits.

BUILDING & TRADES

"A" construction members working for a Local 1426 signatory contractor are now required to participate in Building & Trades at a fee of $54 per year for North Dakota residents and $26.80 for Minnesota residents.
The North America’s Building Trades Union, exists to provide support for unionized workers in the construction industry of North America. Our goal at B&T is to promote growth and development of construction trade unions to ensure a safe, fulfilling, working environment for tradesmen and women in North America. A strong sense of support for and between unions and union workers allows trade unions to have a real, strong, presence in their community and government at both a local and national level. By working together with other local unions in North Dakota and Minnesota, tradesmen and women benefit in terms of safety, economics, and, representation.
