Painters agreement raises compensation $9.86 over three years

By DON McINTOSH

Members of Painters Local 10 voted by about 90% June 29 to ratify a new three-year agreement with Associated Wall & Ceiling Contractors (AWCC). The deal aligns AWCC with terms that union members ratified in May with the larger Signatory Painting Contractors Organization (SPCO).

About 90 members are dispatched to AWCC contractors. First year compensation increases of $3.86 an hour took effect July 1, with $1.08 of that going to increase benefit contributions. Total compensation rises $9.86 by year three. Under the new contract a journeyman painter now makes $33.50 an hour plus $15.46 an hour in health, pension, and other benefits.

The agreement runs through June 30, 2026, and covers painters working for six signatory wall and ceiling contractors: MidValley, IES, WPI, Anning & Johnson, Resolute, and Scott Coatings.
