Solar Panel Installer
Beginning March 1, 2021, IBEW Local 428 will follow the attached dispatch procedures for placing the panel installer classifications on our solar projects here in Kern County.
This process should be in place before there are any calls for our upcoming large projects—Big Beau, Sanborn, and Edwards—and will remain in effect until amended or modified, as posted at our Union Hall, 3921 N Sillect, Bakersfield, CA 93308. If you are interested in working on these or any future projects in Kern County, you must register by clicking "Register on Out-of-Work List" below at any time or in person at the address listed above, Monday-Friday 1:00pm-5:00pm. All registrations received on or before March 1, 2021 will be placed on the “Out-of Work-List” according to their last known termination date out of our Hall. Registrations received after March 1, 2021 will be placed as outlined in the Dispatch Procedures. If you are employed on one of our jobs on March 1, 2021, then you may register when you are no longer employed.
Beginning March 1, 2021 all calls to be dispatched the following business day will be posted on this page and on our solar job recorder at (661) 912-0098. Anyone interested in taking those calls must sign our “Daybook” by either clicking on "Sign Daybook" (it will be available on this page when there are calls to be dispatched), or by leaving a message on the job recorder at (661) 912-0098. Daybook must be signed between 5:00pm on the day the job was posted and 8:00am on the day the job is to be dispatched.
Due to the overwhelming number of calls to our office, we ask that you visit this webpage or call the jobline at (661) 912-0098 regularly. We will update with important information as needed.
Also know that all future applicants for employment not already a Member of the IBEW will have 30 days from their report date to do so. Instructions on that process will be made available at time of dispatch.
