Drug/Alcohol Testing
* Unless there is an Onsite Drug Test for the Job Call you are taking,
you will need to be MOST compliant.   
* The MUST drug test is reciprocal to the MOST system.  If you 
are MUST current, you will need to bring  a printout of your
MUST profile to the jobsite.  You should also bring 2 forms of
ID to the jobsite with you.
* If a job requires OSHA 10 or OSHA 30, a Toledo, Michigan or Fire
Alarm License, it will be posted in the job call description.
* In an effort to better serve our members, contractors and customers,
Local 8 implemented a BID/DAY HALL/CALL BOOK
effective May 28, 2019. 
* After new jobs are posted in the evening on the job line and on 
the website, a member can bid online, through a computer or mobile  
device, or call the job line and enter "1" for Book 1 (all classifications)  
to bid or enter "2" for Book 2 (all classifications) to bid. 
* When placing a bid on the job line, please leave your name, 
classification,  page and line number, as well as the job(s) you are 
interested in.
* Bidding begins at 4:30 p.m. and will be closed at 7:30 am. We will 
still have a day hall so a member can come in anytime after 7:30 am  
to sign the day hall sheet.
Daily Referral Schedule
