MoveUP Dispatch Procedure Update

May 17, 2017

To: MoveUP labour group bargaining unit employers

Sisters and Brothers

We are writing you today to update you on the recently updated dispatch procedures for MoveUP labour employers within the labour group. You have dispatch language within your Collective Agreement which defines your dispatch process with MoveUP.

Dispatch has qualified members who are available for short term as well as full time work.

In order for an employer to submit a request for short term placement and/or long term via posting we ask that you contact us by using the dispatch email below. It is the quickest and most efficient way to reach us.

Should you have a short term placement and you would like to name request in order to bring in a specific dispatch member for this period we ask that you contact the dispatch desk staff to confirm their availability. Please do not contact the member directly. We will work quickly to determine if this member is available to you.

If you have a dispatch member currently working at your worksite on a short or long term placement and wish to extend the placement period we ask that you advise the dispatch desk staff.

You can either telephone the MoveUP office at 604-299-0378 or email the dispatch desk staff at dispatch@moveuptogether.ca.

If you have a posting to distribute to the labour group as per your collective agreements you can send to the dispatch email address and it will be distributed to the labour group. If you need some help assessing your needs we will be happy to direct you to the appropriate bargaining unit union representative who can provide you with the necessary information.

Should no MoveUP members apply to your posting and you need to post outside the union please do let us know. We can advise our labour group members to circulate the posting for you which should help in your recruiting efforts.

We would appreciate being advised who the successful candidate is.

For any questions regarding these procedures and/or any other dispatch related questions feel free to contact us at the above numbers. We appreciate your assistance as we aim to provide quick and efficient dispatch of qualified candidates for you.

In Solidarity,

Amber Hockin
Director of Operations
