The Dispatch Office
The mission of the Dispatch office is to assist our Membership in obtaining gainful employment within the scope of his or her job classification and skill level. Our goal is to do this in a fair and impartial manner that respects each Member’s right to be offered work based solely on Out-of-Work Date and skills designated by the Member.
All dispatches will adhere to the rules and policies set forth in the Pipeliners Local 798 Dispatch and Out-Of-Work Policy, Constitution and By-Laws of the Pipeliners Local Union No. 798, Constitution of the United Association, United Association National Pipeline Agreement and all State and Federal Laws that govern and regulate employment through Union Dispatch Offices.
Local 798 supports the principles of equal opportunity and diversity in Membership and employment. Local 798 does not discriminate based on race, color, creed, sex, religion, national origin, age or disability.
The fast, fair dispatch of Members to open jobs is one of the most important services of Local Union 798. That's what the Local Union 798 Out-Of-Work List is all about.
The Basic Idea
A Job Line has been established and jobs ordered by contractors are posted between the hours of 6 P.M. and 7 A.M., Central Standard Time, Monday thru Friday. You may call and apply for any job in your classification that you feel you are competent and capable of performing. The next morning the job will be filled by the Member that applies for the job and has the oldest Out-of-Work Date. The Out-Of-Work List exists to make sure every Member gets a fair share of the available jobs. Additionally, our fair contractors get the well trained, top-quality professionals they need for world-class pipeline work - people like you - whenever, wherever they need them. If we all do our part, everybody comes out ahead!
