How to get a job

When you’re a member of Local 520, the Union is your source for jobs. You do not need to call contractors or do interviews. Just follow these steps.

1. Find out what jobs are available.

You can find out what your choices are for jobs at our website:

JIW Calls

Call 512-326-9545
or click to visit the page and see a live feed of available jobs.

CW/CE Calls

Call 512-326-4425
or click to visit the page and see a live feed of available jobs.

2. Choose a job online OR Use the “Bid a Call” button on the website.

Select the jobs that you are interested in. You will receive an email between 7:30 and 8 a.m. letting you know if you have the job.

Job Referral Paperwork Must Be Completed by 10 a.m. or the Job Will Be Forfeit

3. Choose a job in person.

Come to the Hall to sign in between 6:30 and 7 a.m. Promptly at 7 a.m., the Dispatcher will begin to assign jobs.

Jobs are assigned on a first-out, first-in basis. In other words, the member who has been out of work the longest has the first choice of jobs.

If this process is confusing, we created a video narrated by Jonathan “The Wizard” Murray.
