Unionworx App

We are ready to roll out the app for all of our members to use. The app is found in the app store under the name “Union Worx”. Download the app, look at the bottom of the Union Worx home screen, tap on the word “Register”, fill in the required information. Once you have the information completed tap the blue “Register” button. You should get a green box at the top of the screen that says “Thank you for registering! You will receive a confirmation email once you have been approved”. From that email, you’ll be able to login and begin to see what is on the app. Until everyone on the book is registered your position on the long and short call book may not be accurate, we will still keep the book going the way we have been until we’re fully comfortable with the app. If you have questions about the book position feel free to contact the hall. You will be notified of the calls at 4:30 PM for the next day, feel free to bid on them any time between 4:30 PM and 10 AM. You will be able to put in for a call by using the app when you are registered. When bidding on calls you’ll be able to bid on multiple calls and select your preferences 1,2,3…etc. The app will also notify you if you did or didn’t get the call. Resign, dues and other things will be coming in the future.

You can also sign up online with the address below.
