Local 222s Collective Agreements Wage Determination Update

Local 222s Collective Agreements include Wage Determination formulae for adjustment of wages for Industrial work. Some of these formulae also affect Commercial/Institutional work.
The formulae require that, to determine whether there will be a wage adjustment in May, the daily price of benchmark WTI Oil be averaged for the December through February period. For December, 2017 through February, 2018, the average price was $61.29. Because this was less than the $65.00 threshold in the formulae, there will be no adjustment to wages for Industrial work in May, 2018.
The next calculation will look at benchmark oil prices for the June through August period, to determine whether there will be a wage adjustment in November, 2018.
