ESS is back up and running! Sorry for the inconvenience. We have installed Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) to increase your security. To log in, enter your existing username and password.
Upon logon, you will receive an email to the email address in our system. Enter this code in the pop-up. You will then be required to enter a new secure password and answer new security questions. All future logins will require authentication from your email and you will not be required to change your security questions. Please do remember your answers to the questions. Additional security measures will be added and we will keep you updated.

Reports and Payments:
Reports and payment are due by the 19th of each month, covering payroll periods ending in the previous month. Contributions are required for all employees performing work of a nature covered by the Agreement, for all members of Local 4, including owner operators. Further, contributions are due to total payroll hours, including overtime and paid holidays. Payments not received at the Funds Office by the 19th of the month will be assessed interest at the rate of 1% of the total amount due for each month the payment is delinquent.
If you generate your own remittance reports that contain a Social Security Number or seek to fax any document that contains an employee’s Social Security Number, please ensure that you fax those documents to the following secure number at the Funds’ Office: 508-533-1404.
Zero Hours in a Work Month:
If you have zero hours in a work month, you must still report via the ESS system or your account will be considered delinquent for that month. You may email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you have filed online if you seek confirmation of receipt.
Massachusetts Sick Leave Law:
Working dues for payroll hours resulting from the new Massachusetts Sick Leave Law are to be paid at the usual rate of 1.75% of the total wage and benefit package.
