Operating Engineers Local 12 Defined Contribution Plan.

Type of Plan

The Board of Trustees of the Operating Engineers Local 12 Defined Contribution Trust Fund is the administrator of the Plan. The Board of Trustees is composed of an equal number of Employer Trustees and Union Trustees appointed pursuant to the provisions of the Trust Agreement. Many of the day to day tasks of Plan administration have been delegated by the Board of Trustees to the Operating Engineers Fund, Inc.

Plan Year

Funding and Contributions

Plan Participants may not contribute to this Plan. Employer contributions are the only source of funding. These contributions are made according to the provisions of collective bargaining agreements between Local 12 and contributing employers (or in some cases, other types of written agreement between employers and the Trust Fund).  Assets of the Plan and Trust are held in trust by the Reliance Trust Company for the benefit of plan Participants and beneficiaries. Benefits are provided directly from the assets of the Trust Fund.

PBGC Coverage

The Plan is not insured by the Pension Benefit Guarantee Corporation (PBGC) because the PBGC does not insure money purchase plans.

Collective Bargaining Agreements

This Plan is the result of multiple collective bargaining agreements between Operating Engineers Local 12 and employer associations and individual employers. Copies of these Collective Bargaining Agreements are available to you at the Administrative Office for your inspection free of charge. Upon written request, the Administrative Office will supply you with a copy of a Collective Bargaining Agreement, but you must pay the reasonable copying costs for any such copy.

Participating Employers and Employer Groups
