What do I do when I’m laid off?

It’s important to inform the dispatch office via telephone (no messages), in person, or by using the online form (no emails) whenever you are out of work so those days aren’t counted as days worked. You must contact the dispatch office and not the main office staff.

We cannot put you back on the list via telephone message or an email. You MUST use one of the two methods:

  1. Telephone – 778-470-5657
  2. Online Form – https://ibew993.org/end-work/

Even if you do not want to go right back to work, you should should still call in to the dispatch office. If you’re not available for work, just let the dispatch office know and we’ll mark you as not available.
