AGC successfully bargains with the IUOE Local 139.

In June, AGC of Greater Milwaukee finalized a new Area I Master Building Agreement with the International Union of Operating Engineers, Local 139, marking another year of successful negotiations.  This new agreement reflects AGC’s strong dedication to ensuring stability in the industry. Every year, AGC fields a diverse and seasoned bargaining team, and this year was no different.

Features of the new Contract. AGC’s negotiations produced a five-year agreement containing new provisions aimed at benefiting contractors. This new agreement focuses on safety through the Introduction of a Substance Abuse Testing and Assistance Program (SATAP). The wage package increases are lower than the local average. The premium pay for Certified Crane Operator (CCO) Certification is discontinued for those obtaining CCO on or after June 1, 2016. AGC also obtained protective language designed to reduce the risk of Right to Work violations.

IAP/CA Fund Contributions and Services. The new agreement contains administrative changes which enhance AGC’s ability to continue to lead the local industry in services and programing. Under our new agreement, Industry Advancement Program/Contract Administration (IAP/CA) Fund contributions are remitted directly to AGC. This guarantees that your contributions are used for their intended purposes, such as for safety training, management education, contract administration, contract negotiations, public policy advocacy, and workforce development initiatives.

An eye to 2017. Every bargaining season, the AGC fields a diverse and seasoned bargaining team focused on contractor prosperity and stability. We believe that 2017 will be no different as we gear up to bargain with the Bricklayers, Carpenters, Cement Masons and Laborers. We intend to continue the momentum created by our successful negotiations with the Operators by working with the unions and the contractors, and ensuring strong and experienced leadership on our bargaining committees.

The AGC continues as the trusted leader in collective bargaining, and we encourage interested contractors to join our strong bargaining team. For further information contact Nathan Jurowski, AGC General Counsel, at or (414) 778-4104.
