IBEW 1245 operates a Northern California and Northern Nevada Outside Line Dispatch Office for the normal construction labor market for work on electrical transmission lines and substations, and outside work in electrical utility distribution systems. It includes pole construction work, steel or metal structures used for the purpose of carrying electrical wires, conductors, or equipment, street light systems, electrical underground construction work and trolley work. Lineco provides Health and Welfare and the Pension is administrated by NEAP/NEBF.
We have work for journeymen linemen and other classifications as well.
Outside Line members (A” members) are urged to use our online service to check your hours worked, check your spot on the books, update your personal information, and pay your dues on-line.
To speak with an outside dispatcher, call (707) 452-2722. Please call dispatch before traveling to the local. Check list of things to bring: current dues receipt, current driver’s license, copy of social security card, current First Aid & CPR card (online training is not accepted by OSHA) and letter of introduction from your home local.
Dispatching calls 9:00 a.m. to noon, or until completed. If you need to call us, please call between 7:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m.; and between 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. You can also email us at OLfirstname.lastname@example.org or fax us at 707-452-2703.
NEWS FLASH: A new law, now in effect, requires any new employee that has a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) to be registered in a new database. The CDL holder must register themselves in the system before an employer can hire them. For our outside construction members, pre-registering can eliminate any potential issues when taking a new employer referral. Learn more here.
