The agreements below are in their generic form, meaning the only thing different on the agreement your employer signed is the effective dates and the name of your employer on the agreement.
It is important to point out that there are 2 different agreements each contractor had to choose between. 1) with Benefits or 2) with In Lieu of Benefits (ILB). The agreement with benefits requires that every employee covered under the agreement must take the prescribed benefits and are unable to opt out. The agreement with the ILB adds the cost of the benefits (25% of the hourly wage) to the wages. See below to determine which agreement your employer has signed.
Many of the larger contractors opted in to the ILB agreements because taking a large number of employees out of their current plans would increase the cost of their current plan for all other employees, whereas many (not all) of the smaller have opted for the benefits plan, as it allows them to provide these benefits to their employees of which they may not have been able to offer before.
The Direct Labor costs between both plans are identical, in that the cost of the benefits is equal to the ILB. Both are based on 25% of the wage in the classification.
