General Information

ELIGIBILITY

(a) All Employees:

All Employees who are employed within the scope of the Collective Ag reements between the International Union of Elevator Constructors and the Employer and who are in good standing with the International Union of Elevator Constructors must join both the Welfare Plan and the Pension Plan.

(b) New Employees:

New Employees are enrolled in the Plans on the day on which they become eligible for coverage within the scope of the Collective Agreements. Employee and Employer contributions become payable from that date.
New Employees are not eligible for coverage under the Welfare Plan until they have:

  • completed the probationary period of six months as set out in the Collective Agreements; and
  • accumulated and contributed, and had contributions made to the Welfare Plan on their behalf by their Employer, for a further 900 hours following completion of the probationary period. Note: During this 900-hour accumulation period such employee is eligible for the Major Medical and Dental Benefits provided under the Welfare Plan. Full coverage will be provided once the employee meets all conditions outlined in this item (ii).

Note:  This requirement does not apply to coverage under the Pension Plan which becomes effective as soon as contributions are received on behalf of the Employee.

(c) Partners and Sole Proprietors:

Employees who are partners or sole proprietors of an incorporated company by which they are employed are eligible to participate in the Plans.  Contributions for a minimum of 160 hours per month must be remitted to be eligible for Welfare Plan participation. In addition to this monthly contribution partners and sole proprietors must contribute and maintain a 3-month advance contribution to be eligible for Welfare participation. When applying for coverage Articles of Incorporation must be submitted to the Trustees.
Contributions to the Pension Plan are based on the actual hours worked in the month.
If the company is not incorporated, the employee is not eligible to participate in the Welfare and Pension Plans.

(d) Employees Promoted to Supervision:

Employees who have accepted a supervisory position and who remain active members in good standing with the International Union of Elevator Constructors have the option of either:

  • remaining in the Plans for service after the date of promotion, subject to the approval of the Employer, the International Union of Elevator Constructors and the Trustees; or
terminating their active membership in the Plans for service after the date of promotion by notification to the Trustees
