Bidding Process

What to Know Before You Bid

  • Carefully review each job posting. Only bid on a job if you have the experience, skills and certifications listed in the posting.
  • Members need their union registration number (located on your union card) to bid online.
  • Members bidding on jobs should be on the Out of Work List.  Priority is given to members with the required skills and experience who have been out of work the longest. 
  • Members must be in good standing (dues paid up to date) to be dispatched.
  • Driver’s licence and all relevant tickets and certifications must be valid.

How to Bid on Jobs

Bid Online

You can bid on jobs online (through our job board) weekdays from 4:30 p.m. to 10 a.m. and there are no time restrictions on weekends or holidays.  To bid online, members need their union registration number (located on the union membership card).

Members may bid on many different job positions at the same time, if they have the skills and experience required.

Only bid on a job position once. Multiple bids on the same job position will not be accepted.

When you bid online, you will receive an email confirmation – it is not necessary to call the Union Hall to follow-up on your bid. 

If you do not receive email confirmation of your online bid or receive an error message, please contact the Union Hall before 10:00 am.

Bid by Phone

You can bid on jobs by calling the Union and speaking to administration weekdays between 8:30 a.m. and 10 a.m. You may also leave a voice mail to bid on jobs after hours and on weekends.  To bid, please call:

Edmonton: 780-483-0972
Fort McMurray: 780-799-8199
Calgary: 403-250-3241
