As PIBF Co-Chairman, I am proud to announce an accrual increase for the Welders, Journeymen, and Helpers. The Journeymen rate increased from $205 to $220, and the Helpers increased from $136 to $146 per credit. Additionally, retired members will enjoy a five percent increase in their monthly amount. After the pension raises were calculated, the fund is still at 110.8 percent!
The project is proposed to help meet the growing regional need for clean, reliable and domestic natural gas. The project would cost about $119.3 million and provide 80,000 dekatherms per day of firm transportation service to three customers in Charleston, Dillon, Lexington and Marlboro counties.
