What is a Wage and Welfare Bond?
A union will normally guarantee the protection of its members by requiring a wage and welfare surety bond from employers.

This bond is required before companies can hire members of a union, and will normally entail a collective bargain process prior to the commencement of work.
What is the Sign Display & Allied Crafts Local Union 510 Wage and Welfare Bond?

How does it work?
The bond must be issued by a surety bond provider certified by California’s Department of Insurance. The parties in the agreement are the Principal (business or permit applicant), Obligee (Sign Display & Allied Crafts Local Union 510), and Surety/Bond Company or Obligor (surety bond provider or insurance).
The Obligor will guarantee the compensation (performance bond) of the Obligee should the Principal fail to meet their payments (union dues) or violate other licensing provisions. In such cases, the union can file a claim to collect its dues. The Surety Company will assess the validity of claims, where claims may only amount to the total penal sum agreed upon in the bond form. The Principal shall reimburse all expenses covered by the Surety Company.
The Bond Company is secured through an indemnity agreement as the licensed business is mandated by law for the full reimbursement of the claims, including legal fees and premiums. This agreement shall be made before the execution of the bond and shall ascertain the business's responsibility for their dealings.
