Welcome to IAMAW Mechanics’ Local 701

Keep Your Information Current. Do you need to update your membership info?

As a reminder, if your living situation changes, it is important that you update your records with the proper offices. Whether it be a simple address change, birth of a child, marriage or divorce, this information needs to be updated to reflect the current situation. Proper information is vital in making sure that benefits are paid correctly and promptly. It should also be known, that without a listed beneficiary of benefits, the Funds Office cannot accurately locate the correct individual to receive the benefits owed. Also ensure that you declare your beneficiary for your 401(k) Plan which can be done online.

For any additional information, please contact the office in question.

SAA Update for Defectors, Independents and NCDC Shops

For the shops that haven’t received a copy of their agreement, the Union has been working diligently with the attorneys on finalizing the agreement so that we can get copies out to the shops.  One of the calls that Local 701 Business Representatives have been receiving are questions on the days off for the upcoming Christmas and New Year’s Holiday.

Since Christmas Eve (12/24/2021) and Christmas Day (12/25/2021) fall on Friday and Saturday this year, those are the dates the holidays will be celebrated. New Year’s Day falls on Saturday 1/1/2021 and that too will be the day the holiday will be celebrated.

Please note the contract language states the following:

Holiday Falling Within a Vacation or on a Scheduled Day Off.   If an employee is on vacation or on a scheduled day off when one of the holidays specified in this Agreement falls, the employee shall receive an extra day’s pay as specified above, or an extra day off with pay, subject to the 10% limitation set forth above. The employee shall notify the Employer of this choice at least three (3) days before the holiday. (Article 6 Holidays observed Section 3)

If your intention is to either get paid out for the holiday or receive an extra day off with pay, YOU MUST notify your employer your choice at least (3) days before the holiday.



Important Notice from the Health and Welfare Office

To all Local #701 Welfare Plan Participants: 

It has been brought to our attention that some participants have continued to receive coverage for tele-visits and video visits after June 30, 2021, that were not provided by Teladoc.  This communication is intended to clarify that tele-visits and video visits are excluded from coverage under the Plan after June 30, 2021 and any claims received for coverage of those services after June 30, 2021 may be denied. 

Teladoc is still offered, free of charge, for your medical telehealth visit and is available 24/7. 

As communicated to you in a summary of material modifications (“SMM”) to the Plan in September 2020, the Plan was temporarily amended to provide coverage for tele-visits and video visits from March 20, 2020 through December 31, 2020, as such services were previously excluded from coverage under the Plan.  The Plan Trustees extended temporary coverage for tele-visits and video visits through June 30, 2021. 

If you have any questions, please contact the Fund Office at 1-800-704-6270.
