Local 150 and Will & Grundy County Contractors Association Reach Deal on Three-Year Contract

Today, the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 150 announced that it reached an agreement on a comprehensive three-year contract with the Will and Grundy County Contractors Association, which represents contractors performing construction work throughout the metropolitan area.

“This agreement is a great example of labor-management cooperation,” said Local 150 President-Business Manager James M. Sweeney. “This is a fair agreement that will allow employers to remain competitive with a highly-skilled workforce while enabling their workers to keep up with the cost of living.”

The agreement includes modest increases to wages and benefits and addresses contract language of concern to both parties. The agreement goes into effect on May 31, 2017 through May 31, 2020.

Further information on the agreement will be provided to members at District Meetings throughout the month of May.
