One of the benefits of being a Local 1611 member is assistance with work placement and call-out dispatching. Our dispatchers work directly with our Union contractors to match job requirements with our available members’ skill sets. If you are a member in good standing, and have been laid off by your employer you can register with the dispatch office. To check-in to the dispatch office complete our on-line form.
All members must have a current WHMIS ticket and a Fall Protection ticket in order to be dispatched out to work. Confined Space Entry is becoming a prevalent ticket requested by contractors on several jobsites, not just shutdown work. If you do not have these tickets, contact the TRAINING PLAN to register for the courses to obtain these certifications. Please ensure that the dispatch office has valid up-to-date copies of these tickets.
It is important that Local 1611 has current information to contact you and that your skill profile is up-to-date, including any additional training or certifications you have received. This information assists our dispatchers match requests to Local 1611’s skilled members.
