The International Union of Operating Engineers Local Union No. 12 has entered into collective bargaining agreements with various employer associations and individual employers which provide for, among other things, funding of a comprehensive package of employee benefits for Local 12 members and their beneficiaries. These benefits are funded by contributions on behalf of employees covered by these agreements paid by employers to the Trust Funds established by Local 12 and the employer associations. The primary responsibility of the Employer Accounting Department of Operating Engineers Funds, Inc. is to collect and account for all contributions the signatory employers are required to pay under their agreements with Local 12.
The obligation of signatory employers to pay contributions to the Trust Funds is governed by the applicable collective bargaining agreement, the Declarations and Agreements of Trust establishing each of the Trust Funds, the Operating Engineers Trust Funds Joint Contribution Committee’s Collection Policy & Procedures and Refund Policy, and applicable federal law. This website is meant to provide guidance on the signatory employers’ obligation to pay contributions to the Trust Funds, and it does not alter or waive in any manner the written provisions of the collective bargaining agreement, Trust Agreement, Collection Policy & Procedure, Refund Policy or applicable law.
