JOB REFERRAL PROCEDURES
EASTERN ATLANTIC STATES REGIONAL COUNCIL OF CARPENTERS
As a service to its members, the Eastern Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters (EASRCC) makes available a nonexclusive and nondiscriminatory referral procedure for individuals seeking work with signatory contractors or contractors otherwise bound to a collective bargaining agreement with the EASRCC. The referral procedure is not an exclusive source of employment, and members are encouraged and expected to continue to search for work, consistent with the longstanding principle of “open solicitation.” The referral procedure is not intended to be a source of regular, full- time employment. Applicants will be selected and referred from the referral list for employment, through the Local Union or the Central Dispatch Center, without discrimination based on local union affiliation within the United Brotherhood of Carpenters or based on race, religion, gender, national origin or age. In order to administer the job referral system based on the complex and varied classifications of carpentry work and the available employment opportunities, the following rules have been established.
