1 The wage and fringe package for Technical Engineers in Illinois includes a $0.48 mandatory contribution to the 401 (k) Plan. Members not currently participating in the 401 (k) Plan must submit a written election to their employer to be credited with this mandatory contribution.

Savings

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 Rodmen, 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 Layout Technician, Licensed Land Surveyor, and Instrument Man and fifty four cents ($0.54) per hour for each hour worked for Rodmen and Apprentices, with the exception of 1st Year – 1st Six Months Apprentices Working Dues.

This, in effect, results in a total increase effective June 1, 2012 of one dollar and ninety eight cents ($1.98) per hour.
