Due to the impact of COVID-19 and the financial burden that you may feel in the next few months, the Trustees have agreed to provide health and welfare coverage for May and June 2020 at no cost.  This means that you will not have any hours deducted from your hour bank nor will you have to self pay for those two months if your hour bank is low.  This free coverage will apply to you as long you had coverage for April, 2020.  It will also apply if you were about to become newly qualified for coverage for May, 2020.

This arrangement may be extended beyond June 30th, 2020.  The Trustees will review again in May and will decide at that time.

Finally, for retired members who are in receipt of a pension from Boilermakers Pension Plan and who have health and welfare coverage under the Retiree Plan, monthly deductions for coverage will reduce by 50% effective May 1/20 until the end of 2020.

Please contact the Plan administrator if you have any questions.  The best way to contact the administrator for the time being is via email –
