Oregon & SW Washington AGC and GCCA Contracts

There has been a tentative agreement reached between the AGC & GCCA and the Pacific Northwest Regional Council of Carpenters. The negotiations committee, which is, comprised of Council staff and Rank and File members from Oregon and SW Washington, unanimously recommends a YES vote.

After carefully considering the online survey results the bargaining committee has negotiated a proposal, which reflects the results from the majority of the membership.

-This three-year agreement includes some minor language changes that will help expedite the evaluation process when bringing in new Carpenters.

-Proposed wage increases for the first year (June 1) is $1.00- which is a 2.2% increase

*COLA was at 1.7%

-The following two years (June 1, 2014 and June 1, 2015) wage increases will follow COLA (Cost Of Living Allowance).

-No old work protection on private projects

Historically our wage increases have generally followed COLA, and using the 30 year average of COLA increases, by the end of this contract we would be over $50/ hr total package.(based on a 2.87% average since 1983)

Again, your bargaining committee of Council Staff and rank and file members recommends we vote YES by May 30th.

Update posted June 3, 2013

Ballots were counted Friday May 31st for the Oregon & SW Washington AGC and GCCA contracts. In total there were 868 ballots cast. There were 653 “yes” votes, 197 “no” votes, and 18 ballots disqualified. Proposal was passed. All those working under these contracts should see an immediate $1.00/ hr raise ($0.97 on the check and $0.03 to training) as of June 1st due to there being no more old work protection. Prevailed wage projects are exempt from increases due to State and Federal Laws.

Thank you to all those that took the time to fill out ballots, to the team that brought this offer to vote, and to the volunteers who helped count the ballots.
