New MA Paid Family & Medical Leave

Massachusetts has enacted a new law that will affect employees in the state – The Massachusetts Paid Family and Medical Leave (PFML). This program provides temporary income replacement to eligible workers who are welcoming a new child into their family, are struck by a serious illness or injury, need to take care for an ill or ailing relative, and for certain military considerations.

The program will be funded by premiums paid by employees, employers, and the self-employed. Contributions to the program will begin on October 1, 2019 via payroll deduction. Beginning in January of 2021 most workers in Massachusetts will be eligible to get up to 12 weeks of paid family leave and up to 20 weeks of paid medical leave.

There are many questions as to the specifics of the program.  We will provide updates as we get closer to the January 2021 start date.

Sponsors Needed for a Worthy Cause

The 25th Annual Deanna M. & Ralph A. Bizokas Jr. Scholarship Fund and Charity Golf Tournament is upon us once again. It will take place on October 4th, 2019, beginning at 7a.m. at the Ponkapoag Golf Club in Canton.

Each year The Deanna M. & Ralph A. Bizokas Jr. Scholarship Fund awards two $1000 Local 2222 IBEW AFL-CIO Scholarships in memory of Ralph and Deanna. Many more donations have also been made in their names. Charities like Pan-Mass Challenge, March of Dimes, American Cancer Relay for Life, Friends of Hospice, Out of the Darkness, and others have benefited from our supporter’s generous donations. In fact, over the course of 24 tournaments, well over $250,000 has been donated or awarded in scholarships.

The tournament needs corporate and individual sponsorships in order to be successful. We have a number of tee/green sponsorships available at a cost of $100 each. The sponsorship will result in your name being prominently displayed at a tee or green and at the reception.
