OUT OF WORK??

Posted July 19, 2022

I have noticed that a lot of members sit around and wait for work to come to them. If you are off due to lack of work with your current company, then call and get your name on the “out-of-work list” at your Local union hall. I know that members are told by their company that they are slow and will call them when it picks up (sometimes weeks out) and those members usually choose to wait for that company to call them out of comfort of working for that shop… if you are out of work you should call to get on the out-of-work list right away, here are some reasons why…

  • You need to be on the out-of-work list to file for unemployment.
  • The company you were working for might have a longer shortage of work than they say.
  • You can work for another shop that might treat you better than the one you are waiting on.
  • The company that you were working for might not want you back and just doesn’t want to tell you…

If you are an apprentice that is out of work, you can be sent out on prevailing wage jobs by our Organizers trying to fill non-union work requests that will pay prevailing wages with all benefits going towards hourly pay.

If you are out of work and capable of working make sure you get your name on the “Out-of-Work” list ASAP!
