National Market Recovery Agreements
To help members have the opportunity to get jobs that may otherwise go to non-union contractors and workers, FCA and the IUPAT negotiated a National Market Recovery Agreement (NMRA) available exclusively to FCA members.
The NMRA may be used on projects which would otherwise go non-union assuming the terms and conditions contained in the local collective bargaining agreement are not sufficient for the contractor to otherwise obtain the work.
Highlights of the NMRA:
- Free use of tools.
- Elimination of travel time, work premium, and subsistence payments.
- Competitive parameters for shift work.
- Flexible work hours.
- Overtime pay limited to time and one-half.
- Liberal use of apprentices.
