Any ibew 48 @ the intel site??
20 unfilled today. It is pretty regular. There has been 20 to 40 unfilled daily for the last couple weeks, not all Intel. We couldn't fill a 2 man call at a grain terminal today.There's a few stragglers on this site but I think they prefer to be incognito :shifty:
I hear there's a lot of unfilled calls lately up there.
Are people passing calls up or are the books empty?
...sad, everyone complains when there is no work, yet are content sitting home collecting unemployment as calls go completely unanswered. Contractor should call labor dept..Just over 500 guys between book 1 and 2. Pretty empty compared to recent years. That's after absorbing our local a couples years ago. All 165 of us.
...and what do you do in 3 years when the only work is at Intel and you are not allowed in?no, but you can easily get out of intel by violating some of their safety rules and wont really get into trouble for it. it was a accident, right? if there is a lot of work going on and no apprentices out of work. I would do that.
you wont have to worry about it because you have skills, foreman pay and driving the company service van to help your personal customers out. at least thats what I will be doing....and what do you do in 3 years when the only work is at Intel and you are not allowed in?
