Pipeliners build the pipelines that give communities across the country access to critical energy production. The country has benefited greatly from the use of our domestic oil and natural gas. These domestic resources have contributed billions of dollars to the national economy and helped energize markets across the country and beyond.
We recently finished the 3% allocation that you will receive on June 3, 2019, under the National Pipeline Agreement. All classifications have allocated 30 cents towards healthcare and the remainder of the raise will be put on your 401(k) benefit contribution. Currently, welders and journeymen on high scale work receive $6.89 per hour and helpers receive $3.48 per hour. With the additional monies, welders and journeymen will receive $9.30 per hour on 401(k) and helpers will receive $4.68 per hour on 401(k).
