To be eligible to receive benefits and waive the work search you must register with Laborers’ Local 464 and Wisconsin State Unemployment.
The job search requirement may be waived for claimants who are members of a Union that operates an effective hiring hall or referral system. You must report all earnings, before deductions.
Call the unemployment office to start your claim. When you sign up for unemployment compensation, it is important for you to state your affiliation with Laborers' Local 464. We are a Union Hall not your employer In accordance with Wisconsin UC Laws, members of Laborers' Local 464 who are currently in good standing with the Local will qualify for referral under this union's referral system if they are ready and available for work.
