In response to the current strike with the Construction Contractors Council, several Contractors have banded together to form the Mid-Atlantic Association of Subcontractors & Contractors, or MASC. The Metropolitan Regional Council of Carpenters and MASC are happy to announce that a 3 year agreement has been reached that is very fair to both the Association and the Union Membership. The 3 year agreement provides for $2.90 increases to the wage and fringe benefit package. The first year increases are allocated to Pension, Annuity and Health Contributions. Please attend your Local Union Meeting for further details of the agreement.
Negotiations Continue with the Construction Contractors Council, AGC Labor Division,(“DC Contractors”), but we have not yet reached a settlement. We continue to talk and are hopeful a fair settlement can be reached. We ask that our members remain united and continue to participate with the picketing.

Why Organize, Join Today
Facts show that in construction market areas where a majority of the workers are unionized, workers enjoy higher wages and better benefits. That’s because contractors must negotiate with workers as a group. If a group controls the supply of its labor, workers are in a stronger position to establish their wages and benefits in that market area.Find Out More
