What happens to my benefits when I work out of the Local 98 area?

If you are working out of the Local 98 geographical area, the benefits you receive will be based on the Agreement your employer has with the Local in the area you are working in. The benefits and the rates vary by Local and the only benefits that will be reciprocated to your home local are the Health & Welfare, Pension, and Annuity Fund benefits, and only if those benefits are called for in the Agreement your employer has with that Local. If you have questions or concerns, feel free to contact the Benefit Office for more information.
