SUBSCRIPTION FEES FOR 7/1/2020 THROUGH 6/30/2021

The Board of Trustees approved no change to the formula for calculating subscription fees: it remains at 2019 calendar-year union-only payroll multiplied by .0012. There is also no change to the minimum amount of Assessed payroll of $800,000, resulting in a minimum annual fee of $960, or to the maximum amount of Assessed payroll of $8,291,667, resulting in a maximum annual fee of $9,950.



2019 AUDIT RESULTS

The UCWCP is a Taft-Hartley Trust, qualified pursuant to Internal Revenue Code 501 (c) (9). As such, an audit of the Trusts’ financial statements and net assets is completed annually by an independent auditor. For the 2019 calendar year, the trust has again obtained the highest quality rating based upon generally accepted accounting principles.
