Mark you calendars....
Union Picnic September 13th at Jordan Park,
FYI..... our last call went to #20 on Book II, which gave all those left on Book 1 a ding which was a third ding for many Book 1 so they are now off the book until they resign.
So numbers on Book 1 have definitely changed!!!!

Referral Changes ~ Effective October 1, 2013 the Out of Work Referral Rules have changed...
** Any referral applicant contacted by Administrator who accepts a work call and then subsequently refuses or turns the call down will be removed from the "out of Work List" and will have resign in person. **
There will be no "Strikes", "Dings", "Turn Downs" etc provided the Administrator does not have to revert to the Call Out referral method to fill calls. In that instance, Turn Downs will be noted and three strikes will result in the referral applicant rolling off their appropriate "Out of Work List" and will have to resign in person.

Is Retirement in Your Future???
Whether you are planning to retire in six months, six years, or if retirement is too far ahead to contemplate, it is never too late to keep good records. Saving check stubs, date books, and copies of your employment records are just some of the ways to avoid confusion involving start dates and employers. Think about creating a job history folder to keep track of where you've worked. It may come in handy and make the process much easier on you.
