GOING ON A WORK CALL
When you go on a call, you must be prepared to go to work at the jobsite, on time. There are a few simple rules to follow to make this happen which are in the packet of information you will receive when you sign up. That information is listed here:
1) If you are not clear about
PLEASE ASK. The office needs to know that you know what is expected of you.
2) Be on time. You have to know where you are going and allow enough time to get there with time to spare, including finding a place to park and getting to the actual work location. Get some good maps, locate the venues, and find out about parking or Metro stops and schedules. Check the Local 22 website>Member Resources>Working Venues for addresses, website links, and maps.
3) Have your tools. Again, in your information packet, there is a list of required tools that you must have for all jobs:
Get them and organize them so that you can have them with you whenever you go to a job. You may not need all of them, you may not need any of them, but it is impossible to know ahead of time, and the crew chief can send you home and replace you if you don't have them. Again, our work depends on us being ready for anything, so make yourself ready.
You are also required to carry the following forms of ID, for employer tax form purposes:
Making copies of your tax forms and bringing them with you is also a good idea.
4) Be alcohol and drug free. How you spend your time away from work is your business. But on the job in our industry, being under the influence of drugs or alcohol is very dangerous to you and others on the job. You could be asked to work high in the air, you could be asked to operate machinery or power tools. You could be endangering your life, your coworkers won't appreciate your endangering them, and we won't appreciate the effect on our reputation.
5) Be ready to work. Get to the jobsite a little early so you can check in with the steward, find a place for your coat, toolbag, etc., and have your tools ready to go when work begins. We're expected to go to work at starting time, and not waste our employers' or the rest of the crew's time while we get prepared.
