  1. All registrants who are qualified to use the union hiring hall, and are not working at the calling and are available for work, shall be listed on the hiring hall list in the order in which they signed the list. The hiring hall list shall be updated each month and available for review by registrants. Registrants may only sign at one of the following locations at a time: Tacoma, Port Angles, Silverdale, Tumwater, Aberdeen. Those persons who wish to transfer their registration from one location to another will register at the bottom of the new registration list they qualify for. However, any person registered may be requested according to the agreement.
  2. Registrants shall check-in every calendar month. If a registrant does not check-in on the registration list, they shall be dropped to the bottom of the registration list for the following month. If a registrant fails to check-in for two months, they shall be stricken from the registration list. If the end of the month falls on a weekend or holiday, registrants shall have one additional day to check-in. Check-in may be made by telephone or in person and is only valid if phone number and place on list is verified.
  3. Referrals must be accepted by registrants. Referrals will be made by telephone. It is the responsibility of the registrant to keep their telephone number current for contact and referral purposes.
  4. It shall be the sole responsibility of the registrant to inform the Union Hall when the registrant is out of work and to appear in person to check their qualifications.
  5. The dispatcher will call from the registration list in the order the names appear unless special qualifications are requested or pursuant to the applicable Contracts. In the event special qualifications are requested the dispatcher shall call those on the list who have met the qualification in the order in which the names appear.
  6. When possible, all referrals shall be made between the hours of 5:00am and 5:00pm.
  7. In the event the registrant:
    • Does not answer.
    • Is not home or their phone is disconnected.
    • Refuses job.
    • Is not qualified.

    The dispatcher shall go on the next name on the registration list.

  8. Registrants who are referred shall received a referral slip from the hiring hall. In the event time does not allow for referral slip to be picked up at the time of dispatch, it will be available at the hiring hall and may be faxed or e-mailed to the employer. Registrants failing to report for work after accepting a referral shall be stricken from the out-of-work list.

  10. All registrants attending the Laborers Training School shall not be stricken from the registration list for that reason.
  11. Registrants shall be stricken to the bottom of the registration list when they refuse two (2) referrals provided they are qualified for the job.
