IBT Proposes One Year Extension of Carhaul Contract

The International Union has made a tentative agreement for a one-year extension of the National Carhaul Contract. It will now go to the local officers for review, and then to the carhaul membership for a ratification vote.

jack-cooper-hauler_thumb.jpgThe proposed agreement contains wage increases (45¢ in most hourly rates, 1.8% for full and frozen mileage, and 2¢ per running mile) and maintenance of benefits. Members should read the proposal to be informed. 

If ratified, the contract will expire on May 31, 2022, a year from now. A new contract will be negotiated by the new leadership of the International Union that is elected this November. 

The IBT did not ask the locals to hold proposal meetings for the contract.  

The IBT Carhaul Division’s explanation for the proposed one-year extension is that this is not a good time to bargain, because of the pandemic’s impact on the economy.
