Recently, it has come to our attention that some of our contractors have been subbing out work related to demolition and/or dismantling of sprinkler systems and other piping work, to other trades. This is not acceptable. The dismantling and demolition of any work installed by a sprinkler fitter is within 281's jurisdiction and must be performed by Local 281 sprinkler fitters.
If you hear or observe any work that is covered under the Collective Bargaining Agreement and the U.A. Articles of Jurisdiction being performed by another trade or a non-Local 281 member please call Business Agent George Marcinak 708-214-8809, Business Agent Larry Nichols 708-986-4674 or Business Agent Jack Kennedy 708-577-3088.
This will help us protect our trade jurisdiction and prevent any jurisdictional disputes with the other trades. As you are aware, it is imperative that we protect every part of our trade jurisdiction.
