CHANGES TO HIRING HALL RULES
July 16, 2014
Brothers & Sisters,
As a result of confusion regarding the implementation of the "Three Strike Policy" and Zone Designations IBEW 280 has extended the implementation date to August 1, 2014.
A member wishing to change their Zone Designation should do so during this time time. After August 1, 2014 a member can only change their Zone Designation upon termination.
Notification of being on vacation do not apply until August 1, 2014 and any strikes administered on July 15th are removed.
EFFECTIVE JULY 15,2014
Three Strike Rule- The “Three Strike Rule” is to be re-implemented starting July 15th 2014. The Hiring Hall Rules contain a provision wherein any applicant who does not take a call will receive a strike. After three strikes, the applicant will be removed from the out of work list. Local 280 should be notified of a dispatch via fax when a member is working out of jurisdiction to be exempt from receiving a strike. Local 280 should also be notified via fax when a member working out of jurisdiction receives a termination. The three strike rules are stated in the complete set of Hiring Hall Rules.
Short Call Rules- A short call is a job that lasts 45 days or less (from date of dispatch to date of termination). A short call may not become an extended call, but an extended call may become a short call. After dispatch to a short call, applicant’s name will be removed from the short call list. Upon presentation of termination slip the applicant’s name will be added to the bottom of the short call list.
CHANGES TO RE-SIGN EFFECTIVE DECEMBER 1, 2014
Re-sign- In order to maintain a position on the out-of-work list, ALL applicants must re-sign in person during the month of December. All applicants on Book 2, 3 or 4 must re-sign during December, March, June, and September. Re-sign other than in December may be in person, by e-mail, by fax, on the website, or by U.S. Postal Service.
If an applicant fails to re-sign in person during these time periods his/her name will be removed from the out-of-work list. The Local does not send out notices to applicants that have failed to update.
