Local 302 Members: Did you know you can register or re-register for the Out of Work List on our website? Click here for next steps.

Here are some tips for success:

  • Re-register for the OWL well in advance of your registration expiration date. If registered for 90 days, then re-register every 60 days. You do not want to risk being late registering and getting dropped off the list.
  • Make sure Dispatch has your current phone number.
  • Answer your phone, or the job might go to the next person.

It's time for the annual Toy Drive! Local 302 is collecting new, unwrapped toys and/or canned food to help bring joy and support to children in need.

Please bring items to your local hall or the holiday party in your district (no later than your holiday party please). 

Here at Local 302 we care deeply about the physical and mental health of our members.

Around the holidays and throughout the rest of the year some people may struggle with mental health, substance abuse, or need support.

Should you or someone you know need help, reach out to your Field Representative or refer to the resources found on our website: https://bit.ly/3GtdCyb

Happy Labor Day to all Local 302 members and their families. On Monday, September 4, 2023 we celebrate the contributions of workers to the development and achievements of the United States.

The holiday has its roots in the labor union movement, specifically the eight-hour day movement, which advocated for a fair work-life balance. Let’s take a moment to appreciate the efforts of all workers who have helped build America.

Enjoy a well-deserved day of rest and festivities.
