IUPAT has approximately 600 contractors in the various trades throughout Ontario. The Union acts as a referral for members once an employer requires people with the skills to fill the employers’ needs. Most Locals require their members to call weekly and put their name on an out-of-work list and as the employer calls for workers, we send the person with the employers’ requirements to that contractor.

Other circumstances may include a hiring hall procedure in some locations in the province or members may canvass our contractors for employment. The Union only requests that in the event a member does find employment, that the Union is contacted and a referral slip will be sent to the contractor outlining the worker’s wages.
