In all cases, out-of-work apprentices must contact the Local Union 659 office and the JATC office within 48 hours of being laid-off.
  • An apprentice dismissed for cause, must report to the JATC office prior to signing the apprentice out-of-work list. An apprentice dismissed for cause will not be permitted to sign the out-of-work list without a clearance from the JATC office.

    • A reduction in force or eligible for loan slip from their employer.
    • A current dues receipt.
    • A current apprentice license.

  • An apprentice may turn down any job offer that is not within a 50 mile radius of their registered home address. Apprentices may not refuse any job offers that are within this range.
  • A contractor may recall an apprentice who has been laid-off or offered for loan within 90 days of the layoff. Contractors requesting the return of an apprentice who has been reassigned should allow 7 days notice for the transition.
