Northeast Carpenters Announces New 'Out Of Work' Dispatch System

From Shanty Chatter

The much anticipated new DISPATCH SYSTEM for brothers & sisters on the "Out of Work" List has been announced. As per the council web page; members of Northern New Jersey's new Local 253 (formerly Locals 6, 15, 124 & 1342) are directed to call the Toll Free Edison Dispatch Center at: 1-855-273-1563, between the hours of 7 am & 2 pm, Monday thru Friday.

Similar to the 20/20 System implemented by the Northwest Carpenters, the NRCC system calls for members to be available to receive calls daily between 2 pm & 6 pm, or be skipped-over in favor of the next member on the list. An updated skills form is paramount for this new plan to be fair & effective. Click on the below links for more complete details.

I would ask that if you would like to leave a comment that you think of Local 157 Blogspot as your online meeting hall and that you wouldn’t say anything on this site that you wouldn’t, say at a union meeting. Constructive criticism is welcome, as we all benefit from such advice. Obnoxious comments are not welcome.
