DISPATCH

Applicants will be offered jobs in order of their registration.  DAY BOOK sign in will be 8:30 A.M.., in person in the Local Union Hall, by fax, or by telephone Monday thru Friday with dispatch to follow.

$            To place your name on the day book by fax you must sign or print your name legibly, state which job or jobs you are willing to accept, card number or last four numbers of your social security, and a phone number where you can be reached between 8:30 a.m. to noon mountain time. The fax must be received in our office before 8:00 a.m.!

$            To place your name on the day book by phone you must call the job line after 5:00 p.m. the day before dispatch and before 8:00 a.m. Call 719-561-8000 ext. 3 – after hearing all the calls for the day wait for the beep and clearly state your name, spell your name, state which job or jobs you are willing to accept, card number or the last four numbers of your social security, and slowly leave a telephone number where you can be reached between 8:30 a.m. to noon mountain time.

$            If ext. 3 is full, you may leave your message on ext. 13 or ext. 10.

Referrals from the day book will be dispatched beginning at 8:30 a.m.  A return phone call will be placed only to those who were dispatched.  If no applicants are available by 8:30 a.m., dispatch will remain open all day and be filled by the Business Manager by whatever means necessary.  Any unfilled calls by close of business will be placed on the recorder again that evening.

In an emergency, referrals may have to be made outside normal hours using whatever means are available to fill calls and place registrants.

Anyone accepting a call, either in person or by return phone call, who after the referral has been written and the company notified of the responding applicant, decides not to accept the job assignment, he will be removed from the out of work list and will need to sign again in person at the bottom of the list.

40 HOUR OR LESS:  An applicant who is referred to a job and, through no fault of his/her own, receives no more than forty (40) hours work shall upon re-registration, be restored to his/her appropriate place on the out-of-work list.

Short Calls:  Effective immediately, short calls will be for forty (40) hours or less, excluding overtime, within seven (7) continuous calendar days.  Upon the completion of the short call, the Contractor may extend the call for an additional forty (40) hours or less, excluding overtime, in an additional seven (7) continuous calendar  days not to exceed fourteen (14) calendar days total,  with the agreement and approval of both the employee and the Business Manager of IBEW Local 12.  Under the policy, when a short call comes in, it will be offered to the first person present, faxed or who phoned to be put on the short call list.  If that person turns it down, they move to the bottom of the short call list and it will be offered to the next person on the list.  This continues until the call is filled.  When you return from a short call, you’ll return to the bottom of the short call list.  If  you faxed in to accept another call, but didn’t indicate that you’d take a short call when one is available, you turned that call down and will roll to the bottom of the short call list.  None of this affects your status on the regular day book.
