    In an effort to better serve our members, contractors and customers, Local 8 implemented a  BID/DAY HALL/CALL BOOK
    effective May 28, 2019. Calls will still be filled in order by page and line number.

    After new jobs are posted in the evening on the job line and on the website, a member can 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, please leave your name, classification,
    page and line number, as well as the job(s) you are interested in.

    Bidding 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

    * At 8:00 am the Dispatcher will call those who bid on Book 1 and those in the Day Hall
    * If calls are filled by the Bid List/Day Hall no one will receive nicks. 
    * If calls have not been filled off the Bid List/Day Hall, then the Dispatcher will begin calling
    the Top 20 on Book 1. Only people in the Top 20 will receive nicks if they do not accept a call.
    * We will update the website and job line as early as possible with any jobs remaining.
    * Followed by calling those who bid on Book 2 and those in the day hall.
    * Followed by calling the Top 20 on Book 2. Only people in the Top 20 will receive nicks if they
