If interested in a job call listed on the recorder,
leave your full name, a phone number that you can be reached at, and the job
call that you are interested in.
The next morning that the office is open, an agent
will fill job calls in chronological order based on those who left their name on
the recorder, starting with the highest priority group (book 1, book 2, etc.)
The message will indicate if there are no calls
The 3 turndown rule will be enforced.
If a long call is filled by someone behind you on
the book, you will receive a turndown.
Refusing a reduced rate call (less than 100% wages)
or a short call (3 weeks or less) will not be considered a turndown.
Rejection by the employer is not a turndown. If you
are working under the collective bargaining agreement of another IBEW local’s
jurisdiction, you will not be given a turn down.

the 3rd turndown.
The registrant must re-register

removed from the list.
The Business Manager is responsible to
fill calls in a timely manner as needed by the employers.
Referrals may have to be made outside normal
business hours using whatever means necessary to fill the request by the
employer to place registrants.
