January 20, 2016 Hiring Hall Clarification

Some of the Collective Bargaining Agreements that IBEW Local 48 is party to provide for an exclusive hiring hall B that means that the only way an employer can obtain employees is by referral from the Union.

The purpose of these rules is to provide for an orderly procedure for the referral of applicants under all agreements, exclusive or nonexclusive.

No applicant may be discriminated against by either the Union in the referral process or the employer in the hiring process for any reason contrary to the law, the contract or these rules.

In addition, no applicant may be forced upon any employer. An employer may reject any applicant for employment.

The hiring hall is not an employment referral agency under the ADA and does not make fitness for duty determinations. Local 48 will refer any registrant without regard to physical fitness.
