Temporary Location Changes to 513 Union Meetings

Please note the changes for the April and June meetings. All meetings will start at their normal time, 7 pm. The location changes have been made to allow for social distancing. 

Vital Enrollment Form Information

Brothers & Sisters,

In June and again in August, you received a Vital Enrollment Form to be filled out and returned to the benefit office.  The fund is required by reporting agencies, such as the Department of Labor and the IRS, to ensure all vital information is up to date. Incorrect or outdated information can impact the funds ability to report correct information and to accurately pay benefits, in addition to being subject to fines imposed by the DOL and the IRS.  Due to the lack of response from a significant amount of our members, the Trustees have extended the due date to return the completed vital form from September 30, 2020 to December 31, 2020.  The Trustees make every effort to comply with all laws and regulations and to maintain updated and accurate information.  However, the Board recognizes that providing coverage for the members and their dependents during this unprecedented time is equally important. If you are one of the members that have not returned the vital form, you will be receiving another one by the end of October. Please complete and return it to the benefit office as soon as possible.

Fraternally,

Tim Sappington

Support SB 262 for IUOE Jobs: Bipartisan Investment in Missouri Infrastructure!

Missouri’s infrastructure is crumbling. Our state is falling behind and putting our working families at risk. Missouri's transportation network directly impacts the quality of life for Missourians. Good roads and bridges connect us to work, school, healthcare, and recreation. Poor roads and bridges are a threat to the health and well-being of Missouri’s working families.

Senate Bill 262 is a bipartisan bill that aims to fix these problems. Despite maintaining the 7th largest transportation system in the United States, Missouri ranks 45th in transportation funding.

  • $825 million in high-priority transportation needs go unfunded every year.

  • Due to inflation and the ever-improving vehicle fuel economy, the purchasing power of Missouri’s state fuel tax has effectively dropped from 17 cents to 6 cents.

  • More than 6,700 miles of Missouri roadways are in poor condition.

  • Over 2,000 bridges in Missouri are rated as structurally deficient

By passing Senate Bill 262, we provide our state with the tools to fix these problems. And SB 262 will provide our state with good-paying UNION jobs for years and years to come. Those good-paying jobs with benefits will benefit Missouri workers and will build a stronger community and economy for all working families.

CALL your Senator and ask them to support the bipartisan Senate Bill 262 for good-paying jobs and investment in our aging infrastructure.

New Drop Box

For the safety of the membership and our staff, we are not allowing foot traffic into the hall or the benefit office until further notice.  We have installed a drop box for your convenience.  It is located at the front door of the hall.  Please feel free to drop anything for the benefit office or the hall.  We will process all paperwork and dues in a timely manner.  Union cards will be mailed out on the next business day.

The box will be checked several times throughout the day between the hours of 7am-4pm Monday through Friday.

Thank you,

Tim Sappington
