The Boilermaker Vacation Trust was originally established in 1963 as part of the Western States Construction Agreement. Over the years, other lodges have joined the trust, either because they added a vacation benefit to their contracts or they merged their individual plans into this trust to gain legal protection.
Twenty-two local union lodges participate in the Boilermaker Vacation Trust. They include Locals 4, Zone 7, 11, 13, 27, 28, 29, 45, 60, 83, 92, 101, 107, Zone 175, Zone 193, 237, 242, 363, 502, 549, 627, and 647. If you have worked in the jurisdiction of any of those lodges, you may be entitled to a Vacation Trust benefit.
The Vacation Trust distributes benefits on December 1 of each year. The payout covers contributions received for work in September of the prior year through August of the current year.
If you believe you are entitled to a Vacation Trust benefit but did not receive your check, please contact the administrative office at 1-800-833-2682 or by email to BVT@cvadministrators.com. Please note in the email subject line “Unclaimed Check.” Provide your full name and the last 4 digits of your Social Security Number in the body of the email and the lodge(s) and date(s) worked.
If you are owed an unclaimed benefit, it is important that you claim the benefit as soon as possible, because you will permanently forfeit the benefit if you do not claim it within three years from the date the benefit was payable.
The Board of Trustees will consider making a payout prior to December 1 where the participant has died or retired. Requests for early payouts should be directed to the Board of Trustees, 20910 Redwood Road, Suites E & F, P.O. Box 20757, Castro Valley, CA 94546-8757.
