OUT-OF-WORK LIST

It is the responsibility of members to phone the union hall (709-747-2111, ext. 221) and report to the staff when they have been laid off from work. It is only at this time will you be placed back on the out-of-work list. There have been numerous times when a member has posted in for work, and we found that they were not on the list. We have posted the out-of-work list at the union hall for any member who wishes to check and see if they are on the list.
