Board of Trustees

Under the Taft-Hartley Act (1947), a health and welfare trust fund must be administered by an equal number of union and employer representatives. These individuals are known as “trustees.” It is their job to manage and administer the plan. They make decisions about the plan’s assets, establish eligibility rules, determine the plan’s benefit levels, and determine the processes and procedures for paying benefits.

The JBT Trust Agreement establishes how the union and Participating Employer trustees are appointed. A copy of the JBT Trust Agreement is available by written request to the JBT’s Administrative Office.
