Possible Salting Opportunity At West Point - Apply NOW

We have information that Tradesource - a company that refers electricians and other trades to non union projects is looking for electricians in this area. We know that one of the projects is in West Point for an Out of State Contractor.

We already have members who have been contacted and have been called by Tradesource because they have salted with this employment agency on previous salting assignments. These members have already informed the union hall that they have been called.

We want every member who wants to help the local and is in need of employment to have the ability to gather information on these projects
-especially the West Point project - so we encourage you to call the Tradesource Westchester County office and start the application process.

You can apply either openly union or you can hide your union affiliation. Either way is acceptable to us. So you know, it is not considered "lying" on an application to hide union membership. In fact, it is your right to conceal or reveal it to anyone you choose.

Please take the time and go to the "Join IBEW Local 363" box on our website and READ THROUGH the box labeled "Salting". It is there that you will find the information you need to know about the difference between "salting" and just "working non-union".

If you are hired you will be helping the union by gathering information and following the direction of the local union organizers or agents and you will be making a paycheck at the same time. It is a win-win situation for you as a union member.

Here is the phone and address of Tradesource in Westchester County, NY:

172 E Boston Post Road 1st Floor
Mamaroneck NY 10543
(914) 381-1700

Here is the link to their website:

Please remember that to fail to notify the local union if you have agreed to start the process or accept a job is not salting - it is only working non-union - which is not an acceptable situation.

Please call the union hall with any information or if you get any indication that you could be hired. You can ask for our Organizer John Sager or our Sr. Assistant Business Manager Sam Fratto and they will help you with any concerns or questions.

Thank you all in advance for your help and efforts.
