If You Work Outside, Make Sure You Are Paid Correctly: Part 2!

Continuing with our previous post, here is a way to determine that you are getting the correct benefits outside. If you are working outside and should be making $46.15 per hour, than you should be getting W&C benefits which are $38.88 per hour in benefits on your stamp. If you should be getting the outside modified rate ($38.43 per hour), then you should be paid the MWA Benefit rate which is $18.67 per hour in benefits on your stamp. Here's a picture of the stamp explaining what to look for:

If You Work Outside, Make Sure You Are Paid Correctly!

In the current MWA Agreement, there is a provision that allows a shop to send up to two of its employees to install custom woodwork for a wage rate lower than the prevailing outside wage rate. Below is a flow chart that goes over what conditions must be met in order for a worker to be paid less than the prevailing outside rate to install woodwork.

Interested in Working Outside? Here is What You Need

Members who are interested in doing woodwork installations need some classes before they can get called off of the Out-of-Work List (OWL) for these type of jobs. Here's what you need:

 

  1. Completion of the 10 Hour OSHA Saftey Course
  2. Completion of the Scaffold User Certification Course (4 Hour Course)
  3. Completion of the Interior Finish Course (52 Hour Course - 13 Nights)

 

Once you have completed all these courses, they will be added to your OWL Portfolio. Now when a contractor asks for workers off the OWL and he requests they have those 3 certifcations, you will be called for work if you are the next one on the list.

To sign up for any of the night classes or just to check if you have previously taken them, call the Labor Technical College @ (212) 727-2224

Once you are certain you have these certifcations, call the OWL @ either (212) 366-3330 or (800) 858-8683 and place yourself on the OWL for Manhattan (Outside) or any other boro you are interested in working in. The 2790 Shop list is only for jobs in the shop.
