Requests will be assigned relative to the applicant’s position on the out of work list. We must have an available phone number so we can contact you if you are referred for work.  We must speak with you to be assured you have been notified about your referral.  We will notify referral recipients between 8 a.m.-12 p.m. the day of referral. Only successful applicants who get the job referral will be called. Any unfilled calls after 12p.m. can be filled by the hiring hall, as they deem necessary.

  1. Short Calls – (14 calendar days or less) When taking a short call out of Local 305 you are expected to complete the short call. However, you may still bid on a permanent call while working a short call.  The completion of any short call will reset your turndowns to zero.
  2. Emergency Call-Outs- When special circumstances arise, the Business Manager will utilize whatever means necessary to fill manpower requests in a fair and equitable manner. 
  3. Applicants must continue to meet the requirements for referral under their Group.
  4. Any applicant accepting employment and not showing up for the referral will be removed from the out of work list.
