Job information will now be updated at 3:00pm. 

To the Brothers and Sisters of the IBEW:

 

The following covers temporary changes and/or definitions to  the IBEW Local 175 Referral Policy


The Out-of-Work list is a 30 day Book. It is for members who are ready, willing and able to go to work. If you are working as something other than a Journeyman Wireman or Journeyman Lineman or have no intention of taking a job, please call or email and remove yourself from the Out-of-Work list. If you accept a job, then change your mind, you will be moved to the bottom of the list. To sign the Out-of-Work list send an email to resign@ibew175.org  with a picture of your termination slip.  


You must re-sign the Out-of-Work list monthly between the 10th and 16th of each month. Failure to re-sign will result in being removed from the list. Until further notice, in-person re-sign is suspended. To re-sign the Out-of-Work list, the request can be faxed to 423.855.4313 or emailed to resign@ibew175.org. The request must include full name, last 4 numbers of your social security number and proof of a paid IBEW dues reciept.  


The temporary referral procedure is for all Book 1 and Book 2 members:


Step 1. After jobs are posted each day and no later than 8:00 AM the following day, email 175Dispatcher@gmail.com or leave a voicemail at 423.486.9264.  Within the email or while leaving a voicemail, you must leave your name and contact information and request the 1st and 2nd choice for the posted job referral. The Local 175 dispatcher will offer the awarded bid according to chronological position on the Out-of-Work List. Book 2 members will follow the same procedure but must provide bid no later than 11 AM.

Step 2. The awarded bid will recieve confirmation of the job. A Local 175 dispatcher will contact the awarded bid to confirm terms of the job by 10:00 a.m. The Local 175 dispatcher will then provide company address, jobsite location, hours working, and document verbal acceptance. 


Step 3. Report to Contractor for drug testing, paperwork and to begin work assignment.


Fraternally,


Gary Watkins
Bus.Mgr./Fin.Sec.
