Local 1098 members work in the construction industry and earn family-supporting pay, good benefits, and the opportunity for advancement. Members are involved in a variety of activities within our communities. As a Local 1098 member, you can attend our monthly membership meetings to find out more!

Let us know about your construction skills and certifications by filling out the membership skills form online. 

  • Reminder: Re-registry for out of work is done the first five business days of February, May, August and November.

  • Please remember retiree dues are $8.00 unless you want to be listed on the Out of Work List.

  • Important dates for our active members. Remember the April monthly meeting is held in Grayling, MI on the 1st at 8:00 p.m. 

  • If you are interested in attending any of the classes offered by Michigan Laborers' Training and Apprenticeship Institute (MLTAI) remember it is your responsibility to fill out the application online. Once your application has been received you will be contacted either by mail or by phone from the training institute if you are selected.

  • If you are not working right now, please make sure you contact the hall to get on the out of work list. This is not only a great way to get calls for work but also necessary if you are currently applying for unemployment benefits.

  • We have recently been made aware of this update and wanted to pass it on to any of you applying for unemployment benefits:

  • If you've applied for unemployment benefits recently you are already aware that you are being asked to fill out a form every month naming places you have contacted seeking employment and a contact person. All you have to do is indicate you are hired through the Union Hall on form #1583. You can use words such as "Only hired through Union Hall" and include full name, mailing address and phone number of the Union Hall contact person. Sign, date and return the form per their instructions. Follow this process for each week to claim. If you are not back to work in 120 days you will be required to do the work search information sheet filling out who you contacted while seeking work.

  • You never have to worry about late dues again! You can sign a vacation deduction so your monthly dues come right from your vacation check. Call the officer for more information and for the form to apply.

  • Disability Hour Credit- If you are unable to work due to an injury or illness, you may be entitled to receive disability hours credit during the period of the time you are disabled. Disability hours will be credited toward eligibility at the rate of six (6) hours per workday, up to a maximum of 120 hours per month for up to 26 consecutive weeks. To apply for disability hours you must submit a LOSS OF TIME form to the Fund Office, completed by both you and your physician, within one (1) year of the date of injury or illness begins. Certification for the purposes of receiving Disability Hour Credit must be obtained from a physician who is either a MD or DO.
