Blue Light Report Dispatch - March / April 2020

At the moment, work is slow at every level. In dispatch, we are diligently looking for work with other local unions by making phone calls every day.

Many of our building trades locals have some work, but they do not have the overflow to look at sending out travelers. Some do have work coming, and we will be on top of it as it begins. Also, 798 has work coming, and it looks like a large portion will be high scale work. Read the Business Agent reports for more information.

Welders, please be prepared when you start your work year, especially if you have been off for quite some time. Do not think you will be able to show up and pass a test. We have had many members go out on our work after a long sit on the wheel, and either their machine or their arm and eyes are not ready. Please be prepared and check your equipment before you get to the job site when everything is on the line. Local 798 provides the best in pipeline skills, and we should be prepared.

Call dispatch if we can be of any assistance. Thank you.

    First, I would like to mention how the new NPLA will affect calculating hours in regard to waiting time. If benefits are not paid on those hours, they will not be counted toward your 300 hours.  Please be aware, you could arrive at 299.5 hours and retain your spot on the Out-of-Work List.  Remember, you are guaranteed 300 hours of National Agreement work per Out-of-Work Date.
