July 8, 2019 | Local 570 welcomes 34 plumbers, installers and service technicians employed at Petro Home Services who voted overwhelmingly in late June to become Teamster members. Pedro is a full service home heating oil supplier. Negotiations are underway for their first contract. (The company’s fuel delivery drivers are also Local 570 members.)

In other Local news, a new four-year contract covering plumbers, installers and service technicians at Carroll Home Services was ratified in June. The agreement provides substantial wage increases, enrollment in the Teamsters 570 Health Insurance Plan at no cost to members, increases in paid time off, on-call provisions, and tool, boot, and uniform allowances. Carroll provides HVAC installation and repair services throughout the Baltimore area. Petro and Carroll are both owned by Star Gas.

A new three-year contract was ratified at Whiting-Turner Contracting Company, providing annual wage increases, maintenance of healthcare benefits with a new opt-out provision, an increase in the employer contribution to the 401(k), and an additional holiday.

Members at Terminal Corporation approved in June a new contract with a four-year term. The agreement provides wage and shift differential increases; maintenance to Health and Welfare; an increase in the life insurance benefit, the company pension and 401(k) contribution. Terminal Corporation is a logistics services company.

Negotiations continue for a first contract for American Red Cross blood collectors (phlebotomists). Meetings are scheduled for the last week in July.
