RE: NOTICE OF CHANGES TO THE FEES FOR CASE MANAGEMENT AND THE RAPID SITE ACCESS PROGRAM
To employers affected by:
This notice is in respect to employment of the following trades under the above noted agreements:
Effective January 1st, 2016, the remittance rates for Case Management/Rapid Site Access Program will be:
Increase to the rates of remittances for Case Management and the Rapid Site Access Program has been required for some time. Over the past two years, the program has suffered deficits in excess of $850,000, and the Association can no longer sustain the program from our reserves. The CLR Board determined that adjustment to the contribution rates should be delayed to coincide with the need to adjust payroll systems, such as for wage adjustments. There were no adjustments to the wages for industrial work for these trades in 2015. Accordingly, the adjustment of the contribution rates was delayed to January 151, 2016 to coincide with payroll system adjustments required by changes to taxation and other payroll burdens.
