Jet will send you a mailed and emailed invoice when the bond’s renewal date is approaching. As long as you remit payment, your bond will stay active. You are required to hold a bond for the duration you hire members from either union.

Jet allows you to cancel at any time by sending a request to bonddept@jetsurety.com. Jet will immediately notify the appropriate union. The Sheet Metal Workers Local Union 24 requires the bond to be active for 60 days upon receipt of cancellation notice, and the Sheet Metal Workers Local Union 33 keeps the bond active for 30 days upon notice. If the bond is cancelled early, the cancellation period must be taken into account for any potential refunds.

How Does an Employer of an Ohio Sheet Metal Union Worker Avoid Bond Claims?

Local unions 33 and 24 have the best interest of their members in mind, which is why the bond is required for anyone hiring a member. Employers must pay fringe benefits, wages, salaries, funds, or any other method of compensation required by the union. Ensuring you pay owed dues to the union member you hired is the best way to avoid a bond claim.

If you do have a claim filed on your Wage and Welfare Bond, Jet will ask you to provide all documentation possible and start a thorough review of the details. Jet must pay out any valid claims in the full claim amount, not to exceed the bond limit. The bond pays out for one reason only: failure or refusal to pay wages and/or benefits to the union member, resulting in their financial loss. Because it is your sole responsibility to pay the union members you hire, failure to do so makes you liable to reimburse Jet for any paid out claims.
