HEALTH & WELFARE. 16:1 The parties signatory hereto shall enter into a Health and Welfare Plan for which there is a Trust Agreement, known as the Line Construction Benefit Fund, for the purpose of providing insurance benefits for eligible employees and/or their dependents. Effective the first of the month following the signature date of this Agreement, the Employer shall pay to the Line Construction Benefit Fund the sum of $6.50 for each hour worked. Hours worked shall be deemed to include straight-time hours worked, overtime hours worked, and report time not worked. Remittance shall be forwarded to the place designated by the parties hereto on or before the fifteenth (15th) day of each month for each hour worked in weekly payroll periods ending during the preceding month, together with a monthly payroll report on a form to be furnished to the Employer. It is understood and intended by the parties to this Agreement that the purpose of this clause is to establish an Employer financed Health and Welfare Trust and that contributions thereto shall not be deemed to be wages to which any employee shall have any right other than the right to have such contributions paid over to the Trust fund in accordance herewith. Failure of an individual Employer to make all payments provided for, including liquidated damages for late payments, within the time specified, shall be a breach of this Agreement and will further require action by the Trustees as set forth in the Trust Agreement. Any increase in the required contributions set forth above will be paid equally (50% by the Employer and 50% by the Employee). The amount paid by the Employee will come from their NEAP contribution.
HEALTH & WELFARE. 16:1 The Employer will make contributions to the Line Construction Benefit Fund in the amount five dollars and seventy-five cents ($5.75) per hour worked by all employees. Effective December 30, 2018, the Employer will contribute six dollars ($6.00) to LINECO. Any additional contributions required will be deducted from the employee’s pre-tax earnings for each hour worked. If there is a significant increase in the contributions required by LINECO during the term of this Agreement, upon the request of either party, the parties agree to meet and confer over such increase. Upon mutual agreement of the parties, this Agreement may be amended to reflect any agreed upon changes to the Employer’s contribution to LINECO and/or any other concurrent changes to this Agreement. Employees will be paid retroactively to December 31, 2017 for the twenty-five cent deductions taken from their paychecks in 2017. Employees will be paid retroactive to the date in 2018 when an additional deduction of twenty-five cents (total of fifty cents) commenced.
HEALTH & WELFARE. 18.01 - INSURED BENEFITS (The following clause is applicable to full-time employees only) The following provision will appear in all collective agreements replacing any provision related to insured benefits that existed in the hospital’s expiring Collective Agreement, (subject to inserting in the following language any percentage contribution by the Hospital which is greater than that contained in the following provision): The Hospital agrees, during the term of the Collective Agreement, to contribute towards the premium coverage of participating eligible employees in the active employ of the Hospital under the insurance plans set out below subject to their respective terms and conditions including any enrolment requirements:
HEALTH & WELFARE. The Employers subject to this agreement agree to contribute the amount established in the respective wage schedule per hour of labour worked by their Employees covered by the terms of this Agreement. Contributions will be made on the basis of full or half hours. All amounts paid by the Employer to the Health & Welfare fund shall be in addition to the hourly wage rates established in this Agreement and in no case shall the Employer deduct any such amounts from the Employee’s wages. In case of failure of the Employer to contribute into the Fund on the due date, the Trustees in their joint names may take legal action against the Employer for recovery of the amount due. The Trustees shall have full authority by majority vote with equal representation of both sides to determine the amounts and select and enter into the forms of insurance required and shall be responsible for the administration of the Plan, increasing and decreasing of benefits payable and the eligibility of claims payable including any necessary plan adjustments to prevent duplication of contributions and coverage in the event of compulsory Government legislation. The terms of the Health & Welfare Plan shall not be negotiable under the terms of any collective bargaining agreement. Only that portion pertaining to the number of cents per person-hour earned may be negotiated in each succeeding Agreement. The Employer and the Union agree to comply with all the provisions and requirements of the Health and Welfare Trust Fund and the Declaration of Trust established between the Employers and the S.P.P.T.A. dated April 1, 1969 and amended July 13, 1970, or as amended from time to time since 1970 and future amendments and with such rules and regulations as the Trustees of the Fund deem necessary for the successful operation of the said Trust Fund. The Employers and the S.P.P.T.A. shall elect an equal number of Trustees to the above mentioned Health & Welfare Trust Fund. The Trustees so elected shall not exceed eight (8) in number. In the event of any Trustee ceasing to act, they shall be replaced by another Trustee to be elected by the party who had elected the Trustee who cease to act.
