Line 3 Replacement Project Wages, Benefits and Information
Because of the language contained in the Line 3 project labor agreement, members working on this project will work under the previous National Pipeline contract terms and conditions, including per diem, truck pay and other arrangements. In addition, members working on Line 3 will receive the benefit contribution rates under the previous agreement except for a $.30 HRA Contribution to be deducted from the H&W allocation.
However, the pay raise of 2% on wages will be in effect as of January 1st for all members working on the project.
It took some time to get agreement and clarification on interpretation of the language of the PLA and how that interacted with the new agreement. This is an International agreement and PLA, so we worked with them to address this issue. We didn’t want to post this information before we had this clarity. Thank you for your patience.
