  2. Sean,

    I have been trying to get the ‘Local’ to call me about my Pension. I was a member for approximately 10 years from 1975-1983. I would like to withdraw it and roll it into another plan. Could you help me with this.

    Thank you for your help,


  3. I am a union carpenter out of local 237, in Central Illinois. I have been a member since 2002. My family and I are looking at moving to the Austin area in June of 2016. What does the projected work for 2016 look like? And what is the pay scale?

    1. I know there are some rather large interior systems jobs that will be going on in that time. It is a market recovery contract, so call the Hall to get the details on that.
