Working Dues Increase Notice /  Death Benefit Assessment / Health Insurance Update - Posted October 19, 2021

NOTICE:

IBEW LOCAL UNION 110 MEMBERSHIP

Our working dues are changing per our bylaws on 1-1-2022 from 3% to 3.75%. Per our bylaws, the working dues change to 3.75% when we work less than 2.3 million hours at the end of the trust fund plan year (September 30th). The working dues change back to 3% when we work more than 2.5 million hours. Your employer deducts working dues from your check. We are notifying all the employers of this upcoming dues change. Please look for this change on your 2nd pay stub of 2022. Notify your employer’s payroll department immediately if you do not see this change of working dues on your check. We ask you to do this as these working dues are ultimately owed by you to the Union Business Office and will need to be settled up by you if your employer fails to make this change.
 

 The $42 per month basic dues A members pay are not changing on 1-1-2022.

 A $4.00 Death Benefit was assessed to all Local 110 members in October 2021 pursuant to Article XIII, Sec. 9 of IBEW Local Union 110 Bylaws which states: “Whenever the balance in the Death Benefit Fund falls below $5,000.00, an assessment of $4.00 shall be levied on all members.  The Financial Secretary shall notify such members by card or letter.”

 If you have not paid this assessment, please remit four dollars ($4.00) to: www.ibew110.org (under “Dues Payment” tab) or mail to Local Union 110, 1330 Conway Street, Ste. 110, St. Paul, MN 55106.

 The trustees of our medical plan are making provider changes on 1-1-2022. Please watch your mail box for details from Wilson McShane on these important provider changes. In short, we are changing Health Insurance from Blue Cross Blue Shield MN to United HealthCare Choice Plus PPO Network. Our pharmacy network is changing from Prime Therapeutics to CVS Caremark and you do not have to use a CVS pharmacy unless you are on a specialty drug. There is no fee increase associated with these changes on 1-1-2022. I want to encourage you to get your current prescriptions filled before January 1st to give you time to get your doctor to write new prescriptions to your pharmacy with your new card information after January 1, 2022. The welcome packets should be coming in late November to mid December and your new insurance / pharmacy card will come in late December. Both health and pharmacy will be on the same card.

 I’m encouraging members and their families who can get vaccinated for COVID to get vaccinated. I also think no one should make you get vaccinated if you do not want to. Legal council has advised us that customers or contractors can require people coming onto their property or job sites to be vaccinated. COVID is an issue that is starting to divide our membership. I’m concerned if COVID does not subside, unvaccinated members will have less and less opportunities to work.

 Fraternally,

Jamie M. McNamara

Business Manager/Financial Secretary

Opt in? - Posted December 11, 2020

Local 110 has a group of email addresses that receive notification (bcc) when there is an event that involves one of our brothers or sisters.  This is sometimes good news about a member or family, a picnic or party reminder, and sadly, funeral notices from the paper or family members letting us know.  Many members have requested we share the obituary when we know about it so they can try to attend.  We do not spam you or share your email address with anyone.  If you would like to be added to the group, please click the link below.
