    Change to Inside Wiremen Dispatch Procedures

    Effective August 1, 2022:

    Due to staffing shortages and abnormally long delays at the CA Department of Industrial Relations (DIR), IBEW Local 6 will suspend the requirement to demonstrate compliance with the DIR’s Electrician Certification Program for journey-level Inside Wiremen job calls until further notice.

    Compliance shall continue to be verified before processing a dispatch for the following calls:

    • State Certification Only requests or
    • Construction Foreman requests.

    This change will not change the requirement of compliance with the DIR’s Electrician Certification Program for Employees working on portability in the jurisdiction of IBEW Local 6.


    Effective 3PM PST, Friday, May 22, 2020, all applicants on the out of work list must fill out an “Online JOB BID form” daily prior to start of Roll Call the next day. The Online JOB BID Form is valid from 4:30pm after the "out of work list" is updated until 7am day of Roll Call.
