LOCAL 340 INSIDE WIREMAN REFERRAL POLICY
SIGNING ON THE OUT OF WORK LIST
2840 El Centro Rd., Sacramento, CA 95833
700 Locust Street, Redding, CA 96001
Applicants wishing to sign Local 340’s Out-Of-Work Lists (Books) must be *unemployed and available for work. (*The definition of unemployed is “not working in the electrical industry”.)
Any applicant who qualifies for Group I**, II, III & IV status, must sign their name on the appropriate Out-of Work List. (**NOTE CONCERNING GROUP I STATUS: Once an applicant qualifies for, requests and is granted Group I status in any local union, he shall retain that status in the local union and shall not be required to requalify unless he qualifies for, requests and is granted Group I status in another local union. If that situation occurs, the applicant would have to requalify for Group I status in any previous local union(s) in which he enjoyed Group I status.)
There are two (2) out-of-work books the applicants may sign, in person, during normal business hours:
One (1) for 340 North Counties: Butte, Glenn, Lassen, Plumas, Shasta, Tehama & Trinity
One (1) for 340 South Counties: Yuba, Colusa, Sutter, Yolo, Sacramento, Amador, Nevada*,
Sierra*, Alpine*, Placer* and El Dorado* (*these counties west of the main sierra watershed).
Dispatch will be from the Book where the project is located. When an applicant takes a call in the geographical jurisdiction of Local 340, the applicant’s name will be removed from both lists.
Initial sign-in may require, where applicable, a signed letter of introduction from their home local Business Manager.
The Business Manager is responsible to fill calls in a timely manner as needed by employers. This means, in an emergency, referral may have to be made outside normal hours using whatever means are available to fill calls and place applicants. Any violation or complaint of this procedure may be submitted to the Referral Appeals Committee for adjudication.
Local 340 has In-Person Dispatch Only!
Dispatch window opens at 8:00 AM Monday thru Friday in both Halls. Local 340 will dispatch all applicants under a “Day Sheet” system. All Applicants must sign in on a Day sheet prior to 8:30 AM to be eligible to take a job call. Dispatch begins at 8:30 AM and proceeds until all jobs are filled.
Applicants will be allowed 2 strikes on the Out-of-Work Lists without penalty but will be removed from the Out-of Work list at the 3rd strike. Applicants not available for dispatch will receive a strike except as follows:
Rejection of a qualified applicant by an employer will not be considered a strike. An applicant may only receive one strike per book per day.
When an applicant accepts a referral and fails to show up and man the job, or causes themselves, by their own actions, to be rejected by the employer, their name shall be removed from the Out of Work Lists and he/she must again sign the Out-of-Work Lists in person.
If after being referred, an applicant is rejected by an employer thru no fault of their own, the applicant must return to the Hall in person immediately to notify the Dispatcher of said rejection. Said applicant will not receive a strike and the Dispatcher will return the applicant to the chronological position on the books the applicant held prior to referral.
When an employer requests a job call of fourteen (14) calendar days or less, the request will be listed as a Short Call. Short calls will rotate thru the books on a single call basis. The front of the book for that day’s Short Calls will be determined by the previous day’s short call. Anyone working on a “Short Call” shall not receive a strike. Any applicant hired and thru no fault of their own returns to the Books within fourteen (14) calendar days shall retain their chronological place (original sign in date & time) on the Books provided the applicant signs back in, in person, within 24 hours of layoff.
