Out-of-Work Application

 Effective August 13, 2012




For the work assignment system to provide equal opportunity for all applicants, complete cooperation and strict adherence to these established rules must be adhered to by all concerned.


If you are unemployed and desire to register for work, you must do so by completing an application for the out of work books by personal appearance at the South Charleston Union Office, completing an application on-line via the website or by facsimile to (304) 744-5649 {So. Chas.}.  Office hours for the South Charleston office are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  You are required to give complete information as to your qualifications and other pertinent information as required on the out-of-work application.


RULE #1:        It is essential that you fill out the application completely, answering all questions, as you will be called to work according to the qualifications that you have provided, provided you are next on the list in your respective group.


RULE #2:        When you have accepted an assignment and are worked fifteen (15) days or more, you will not be called again until you report and re-register at the Union office that you are again available, at which time, your name will be placed on the out-of-work list in your respective group.


NOTE:                    Anyone who accepts an assignment and voluntarily quits prior to working fifteen (15 days) shall be required to
re-register, at which time your name will be placed on the out-of-work list in your respective group.


RULE #3:        If you refuse an assignment, you will be placed on the bottom of your respective group.  If you refuse a second assignment, you will be removed from the out-of-work list until such time as you re-register.


RULE #4:        In the event you cannot be reached by telephone, you will remain on the list.  In the event you cannot be reached by phone a second time, you will be placed at the bottom of the list of your respective group.  In the event that you cannot be reached by phone a third time, you will be notified by mail that your name has been removed from the out-of-work list.


RULE #5:        At times, requests are made by an Employer for emergency help.  In this event, if the contact point is such a distance you could not fulfill the request, you will be by-passed but will hold your place on the list in your respective group.


RULE #6:        In order for you to be eligible for work assignment, you must have a telephone number where can be reached. 


RULE #7:       Applicants will be permitted to have their name placed on the following area’s list if the applicant requests (Charleston area, Parkersburg area, Fairmont area, Beckley/Bluefield area).  Applicants may request to have their names added to the Huntington area book.


RULE #8:         If you are registered on the out-of-work list and it is determined by the Local Union that you are working in the industry within your geographical area, your name will be removed from the list and you will not appear on the list again until such time as you re-register.


Your application will remain in effect for a period of six (6) months.  If you desire to remain on the out-of-work list for a period longer than six (6) months, you must re-register.  In order to retain your place on the out-of-work list, you must re-register prior to the six (6) months expiring.


In the event any job applicant is aggrieved, (1) with their failure to qualify for registration or (2) with their group classification or (3) with their order of referral, they must within ten (10) days file with the person in charge of Registration and Referral Office, a written statement of the specific complain setting forth the violation charged.  A committee consisting of an employer representative, a union representative and a Union Chairman, shall consider the grievance and render a decision which shall be final and binding.  The Committee is authorized to issue procedural rules for conduct of its business and it is not authorized to add to, subtract from, or modify any of the provisions of this system and its decision shall be in accord with the system and which decision shall be final and binding on all parties.



Please answer all questions.  If jobs are available, applicants will be called on the basis of the information they have provided.  Therefore it is important that all questions relating to the type of work you can perform and all questions relating to the CDL License and the endorsements be answered.

  • The International Brotherhood of Teamsters is closely monitoring the global health crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Working with other unions, public health officials and other experts in our Safety and Health Department, the Teamsters Union is focused on providing our affiliate locals, 1.4 million members, and staff with the most up-to-date information and resources to help everyone in this difficult time. 

    Many Teamster members across multiple industries are seeing the effects of the widespread transmission of the disease caused by the virus, known as COVID-19. These workers are at increased risk if they frequently interact with potentially infected or infected individuals.

  • The Teamsters Dairy Conference will continue to update Local Unions and our nearly 5,000 Teamster members working at Dean Foods on key developments in the bankruptcy case. We will post relevant newsletters, articles and key dates in this space.

  • Workers’ pensions are being endangered by both Congress and those charged with overseeing them. The Teamsters and our members are standing united to say “No!” to cuts and “Yes!” to greater retirement security!
