The Plumbers Retirement Savings Fund 401(k) and/or Regular Savings Plan Deduction of a MINIMUM of $1.50 per hour for each hour worked for each Journeyman and $1.00 per hour MINIMUM for each hour worked for 4th and 5th year Apprentices remains unchanged. First, Second and Third year apprentices are exempt from this deduction. A Participant CAN DIRECT MORE than the base contribution rate of $1.50 per hour, in increments of fifty ($0.50) cents per hour, but NOT MORE THAN $10.00 PER HOUR to the 401(k) Plan, NOT TO EXCEED THE ANNUAL IRS LIMITS.

Working Dues

The employer shall deduct (after taxes) sixty five cents ($0.65) per hour for each hour worked for each Journeyman, Foreman, Superintendent, General Superintendent and Metal Trades Journeyman and fifty four cents ($0.54) per hour for each hour worked for Apprentices, with the exception of 1st Year – 1st Six Months Apprentices and 1st Year 1st Three Month Metal Trades Journeymen for Working Dues.

The contribution to the Pension Fund has been increased by one dollar ($1.00) from $9.06 to 10.06.

The contribution to the Education, Promotion and Legal Funds for June 1, 2012 will remain the same.

This, in effect, results in a total increase effective June 1, 2012 of two dollars and twenty cents ($2.20) per hour.
