IBEW 143 News

  • The Importance of ERTS

    For those of you who are not already enrolled on the ERTS system we would like to remind you of its importance.  The ERTS system was established to ensure that benefits received outside of your home local are credited back to your home local account.  For this reason it is important for all members to be enrolled to avoid delays and problems with your benefits. If you are a member of 143 and not in the ERTS system or you're not sure if your in the ERTS system call Kirby Artz at 717-232-7093 to have him check your enrollment status. If you are a traveler working in 143's jurisdiction make sure your home local has you enrolled in the ERTS system and your information in the system is current.
