IBEW LOCAL 659 INSIDE REFERRAL PROCEDURE

·         Initial registration for all applicants shall be in person. Registration hours at the Local Union 659 office are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The office is closed at noon from 12:00-1:00 p.m. Registration may be done at a Unit meeting in Klamath Falls, Roseburg, or Medford.  Applicants that register at a Unit meeting must contact the LU Dispatcher to receive a number for referral. You will not be eligible for dispatch until you receive a referral number. All Union members signing the out-of-work list must present a current dues receipt.

      ·          Up-date registration will be monthly. In order to remain on the out-of-work list for the next month, applicants must up-date (a) in person at the hall, or via telephone or fax; or (b) at the Unit meetings designated above.  Applicants who fail to up-date by the close of business on the last working day of the month will be removed from the out-of-work list.

      ·          Local 659 uses a call/show system that operates as follows: The calls are posted on the referral hotline from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 a.m. the following day. Applicants can contact the referral hotline at (541) 664-0802. If an applicant is interested in any of the calls, state (a) his/her referral number, (b) the name of the job he/she is interested in, (c) “Long” or “Short” call, after the beep sounds. (This is the number you were given when you signed the out-of work-list.) Example #1:  If your number is 50 and it is a short call, you would say, "50",  “name” of the job you are requesting and “short call”. Example #2:  If your number is 50 and you will accept all calls, you would say, “50”, “all calls, long & short”.  No other information is necessary. To assure the number and message is recorded, it is recommended that you use a hard wired phone. When you call - speak loud & clear. Do not leave your phone number on the machine. If you're at a different number than the one on the out-of-work list, call the office before 9:00 a.m. and inform the Dispatcher of the change.

·         The Dispatcher will dispatch from 9:00 a.m. until noon (or until all job bids are cleared from the referral hotline) for the calls on the hotline the previous evening.  After dispatch is completed, the Dispatcher will turn over all unfilled calls to the Business Manager or his Representative to fill the  remaining calls.  Applicants must be immediately available to accept the call. The Dispatcher will not wait for applicants to call back, etc. Any calls unfilled by 5:00 p.m. will be placed back on the referral hotline for dispatch the following day.  LOCAL 659 RESERVES THE RIGHT TO DISPATCH  AT ANY TIME IF AN EMERGENCY OCCURS.

·         Applicants on the out-of-work list, that fail to bid on any job, that is not filled by an applicant higher on the list than themselves shall receive a turn-down for that call.  After a third turn-down, the applicant will be removed from the out-of-work list and must re-register in person at the Local Union office or at one of the Unit meetings designated above.

·         Any referral for a job located more than fifty (50) road miles from the main Post Office of the following cities will not be considered a turn-down for those applicants whose listed residence is within the area encompassed by those cities:  Roseburg will include all addresses in Douglas county.  Medford will include all addresses in Jackson & Josephine counties in Oregon and Siskiyou County in California.  Klamath Falls will include Klamath, Harney & Lake counties in Oregon and Modoc County in California.  An applicant’s residence shall be determined by the address registered at the LU 659 office.  The fifty (50) road mile exception shall not apply to any applicant whose registered address is not within the above described areas and every call not filled in the manner described in the previous paragraph shall be considered a turn-down.

·                  An applicant receiving, through no fault of their own, employment of at least one (1) working day but not more than twenty-one (21) calendar days, will maintain their position on the out-of-work list provided they re-register themselves available for work to the Union by the next regular workday after termination.

·                  There shall be a separate short-call out-of-work list.  An applicant may be on the regular out-of-work list and the short-call out-of-work list at the same time.  An applicant cannot bid on calls while dispatched on either list.  All work referred from the short call out-of-work list shall last no more than twenty-one (21) calendar days and cannot be extended for any reason.  To return to the short call list or remain on the regular list, an applicant must have a termination slip from the employer and re-register for work to the Union by the next regular workday after termination.  After a short-call has been dispatched, the next applicant with a referral number in descending order on the list will be the first applicant eligible for the next short call.  Turndowns on the short-call out-of-work list shall be treated in the same manner as described above.  You must be on the regular out-of-work list in order to be eligible for the short call out-of-work list.  

·                  If an applicant requests a job and does not accept, is not available when called, or fails to show up and man the job they  shall be removed from the out-of-work-list and must re-register in person.

       ·                  Once registered, dispatched applicants that are terminated (except for cause) may re-register in the same manner as applicants that re-register monthly.  If you resign at a Unit meeting you must contact the hall to receive your number for dispatch. You will not be eligible for dispatch until you receive your number.  Anyone working on a long or short call will not be eligible for any dispatch until they notify the dispatcher they are unemployed.  You must be terminated from the contractor to which you were dispatched to be eligible to re-register.  When re-registering on the out-of-work list a termination slip should be shown to the dispatcher or if this cannot be done, every effort will be made to verify by other means.  If an applicant is dispatched and subsequently is terminated for cause, they must re-register for work in person.

·        Anyone who wishes to remove his or her name from the out-of-work list must do so in writing, by fax or in person.

·        An employee who has satisfied the standard established by this Referral Plan will retain (but not accumulate) his employment seniority under this Agreement in the following circumstances:

 

1. When an Officer or an appointed Representative of this Local Union requires full time in that office for specified period.

       2. When an employee working for an Employer under the terms of this Agreement is assigned to a position outside the bargaining unit, but in the electrical industry.

       3. When an employee is covered under the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994 (USERRA).

·       Only the Business Manager or his designated Representatives (not the office staff) are allowed to interpret or give­ explanations of all referral rules.

·       These referral procedures and rules are in addition to the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement in effect for the employer to whom an applicant is dispatched.  Any conflicts with the Collective bargaining Agreement shall be subject to negotiation.

·        Any inquiries regarding this referral procedure should first be directed to the Dispatcher assigned to administer referral.

 

Referral procedures and rules shall be at the sole discretion of the Business Manager. Any change in the above procedures or rules, when posted, shall automatically become a part of this document.
