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!
A nearly $1 billion investment, this 120-mile underground pipeline will originate in Dallas, Luzerne County, in northeastern Pennsylvania, and terminate at Transco’s interconnection near Pennington, New Jersey. It will serve to reduce energy costs and support thousands of jobs with clean-burning, American energy. Ultimately, the PennEast Pipeline will help utilities deliver this affordable energy source to families and businesses in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
