Delegate Body Approves $1.93 Per Hour Wage Increase to Begin July 1,2013

The New York City District Council of Carpenters’ Delegate Body on Wednesday, June 12, 2013 ratified by a roll call vote a $1.93 per hour wage increase to begin July 1, 2013 for the members working under the following collective bargaining agreements.

Building Contractors Association (BCA) Independent Building and Construction Agreement The Association of Wall-Ceiling and Carpentry Industries (WC&C)

Carpenters working under these agreements accounted for approximately 9.7 Million Hours of work within the past 12 months, and we look forward to breaking the 10 Million hour mark as more carpenters will be going to work.

Additionally, another $2.40 per hour increase will be allocated on August 20, 2013.

This follows the May 22 decision in which the delegate body overwhelmingly ratified by a roll call vote the new BCA agreement providing a nearly 11% wage and benefit increase over the life of the contract.

The wage and benefit package will rise to $94.36 on July 1, 2014, from a current level of $85.03.

The NYCDCC Executive Committee and the BCA reached a tentative agreement in February. Judge Berman approved the manning provisions of the BCA agreement on June 12.
