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!
Thank you to the 2,100+ Local 798 members and supporters who signed the petition in the Action Network in support of this important project! FERC issued approval in 2018. Construction is now complete, and the pipeline is fully operational.
This interstate natural gas pipeline system will transport 3.25 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/day) of natural gas through approximately 713 miles of 24-inch, 30- inch, 36-inch, and 42-inch diameter underground pipeline through Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio and Michigan. Rover anticipates that the new pipeline and its related facilities to Defiance, Ohio will be ready for service in Mid-2017 with an in-service to Vector/Dawn Hub in November 2017.
