The Association of Union Constructors in Arlington, Va., bills its new Craft Jurisdiction Guide as the only consolidated source of all union craft agreements
The Association of Union Constructors in Arlington, Va., bills its new Craft Jurisdiction Guide as the only consolidated source of all union craft agreements and materials related to jurisdiction. TAUC worked with 14 international unions’ jurisdiction departments to develop the reference.
Disputes involving iron workers, carpenters and other concrete laborers and contractors are among the many bookmarked in the guide. The publication compiles decisions of record in the construction industry, agreements between global craft organizations and local area agreements. It also addresses procedures in assigning work and filing disputes.
The Guide brings all the relevant material related to craft jurisdiction together for the first time [and] provides the information in an electronic format that is key-word searchable and can be easily updated to incorporate new agreements, says Stephen Lindauer, CEO of TAUC.
Although the number and severity of jurisdictional disputes in the construction industry have declined, he adds, when they occur the negative impact can be felt in lost time that impacts project schedule; poor workmanship and quality; lower productivity; de-motivation for workers; and, a negative reflection on union construction.
Pricing for the publication includes Affiliate Member/LEO Member: $350; Governing Member: $200; Guest/Non-member: $800; and, Regular Member: $400. The publication can be purchased at www.tauc.org.
