Thereafter, in order to remain current on the available to work list, you must RE-SIGN. For all applicants on the ‘available for work’ list re-sign will be required monthly beginning on the 10th and ending at 5pm on the 16th of each month. If the 16th falls on a weekend or holiday re-sign will end at 5:00 pm on the next business day. All times are Pacific Standard Time.

Dispatch shall start at 8:00 a.m. You must be by the phone number you left on recorder or at the Hall in person. If there is no answer when we call, we will proceed to next name on the call in list. All jobs shall be dispatched from the Local Union at 519 12th Street, Modesto, CA. The Business Manager is responsible to fill job calls in a timely manner.
Any job/jobs that are not accepted or passes you by each day will count as one turndown. Three (3) turndowns will roll you off the book. EXCEPTIONS: VACATION, DISABILITY, SPECIALTY JOBS SUCH AS WELDER, SPLICER and JOBS WORKED UNDER SCALE, ETC. Vacation dates must be submitted by filing a vacation declaration form prior to being listed on vacation, a maximum of three weeks per year is allowed.
Short calls equal 2 (40 hr) periods or less overtime hours not to count. Over 80 hrs accumulated will remove you from the out of work list. Short calls will erase turndowns and may turn into long calls.
Repeated discharge: individuals who receive two discharges for cause within a twelve month period to be suspended from future referral privileges until they appear before the Appeals Committee. Per Section 4.14 of CBA
Any person laid off, through no fault of his own, who receives 2 (40 hr) periods or less, must resign within (24) hours, Saturday, Sunday and Holidays excluded. You will then be returned to your place on the out of work list with the proper verification of hours. Quitting a job or asking for a layoff to avoid the intent of this paragraph will automatically place the applicant at the bottom of the available for work list. You must notify the Business Manager if there is an emergency and you cannot resign within the 24 hr. period.
On emergency job calls, the dispatcher shall call applicants by phone, starting at the top of group one and proceeding down the list and by group until the job/jobs are filled. Hours do not count towards the 2 (40 hr) periods if replaced and you do not receive a turndown if you do not accept the emergency job call.
