  Construction Labor Lawyer: Hiring Halls
The hiring hall arrangement is a mandatory subject of bargaining, but the NLRB has no power to compel - directly or indirectly - the inclusion or exclusion of a hiring hall provision in a collective bargaining agreement.
A hiring hall system is an arrangement under which a union, through referrals, acts as a source of labor for an employer or group of employers.
Hiring halls are common in the construction industry and serve the interests of worker, employer, and union.

The operator of an exclusive hiring hall, however, owes a duty of fair representation to the users of the hall, and that duty includes an obligation to operate the hall in a man- ner that is "nonarbitrary and nondiscriminatory." Breininger v.
The Court explained that, in the hiring hall context, although referring workers to jobs "resembles a task that an employer might perform[,] * * * the union is administering a provision of the contract, something that we have always held is subject to the duty of fair representation." Id, at 88.
Such conduct in the operation of an exclusive hiring hall may be fairly said to lie "so far outside a wide range of reasonableness as to be irrational." O'Neill, 499 U.S, at 67 (internal quotation marks and citation omitted).

The hiring hall can be a physical location, such as a union hall, office, a dock, or other gathering place, or a "virtual" hall, consisting of a list of employees and jobs kept in the business agent's head or in a computer.
Nevertheless, the Labor Board persists in regulating exclusive hiring halls by means of imposing upon the union operating the hall a "duty of fair representation." This means that the union must refrain from arbitrary, discriminatory, or bad faith conduct in operating the hall.
The hiring hall should be transparent in its operation, which inspires trust on the part of the employees and respect by the employers.

  Hiring hall - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In organized labor, a hiring hall is an organization, usually under the auspices of a labor union, which has the responsibility of furnishing new recruits for employers who have a collective bargaining agreement with the union.
The employer's use of the hiring hall may be voluntary or it may be compulsory as per the terms of the employer's contract with the union (or, in a few cases, the labor laws of the jurisdiction in question).
By contrast, the prevalence of compulsory hiring hall arrangements in Canada varies from trade to trade and from province to province, since labor law there is under provincial jurisdiction.

Hall also claimed that before his interview, a fellow IDOT employee overheard Westell telling others that he "wouldn't be getting the position." She admitted to making that statement, but said she was referring to his past job performance.
Hall sued the three state officials who made the promotion decision, claiming his First Amendment rights were violated when they chose another applicant because he was a more "zealous Republican." The trial court dismissed his claims for two reasons.

A person referred from the hiring hall was required to fill out a "Work Application Form" and tax forms, to provide verification that he was eligible to work in the United States, such as a driverÀÀs license or social security card, and provide his drug screening card.
If the contract for hire is formed when the Union member informs the Union's business agent that he will accept the employment referral, there would be no need for the employer to notify the hiring hall that the member had been hired.
According to claimant, in practice a referred Union member was always hired unless the employer notified the hiring hall that the member was unacceptable before he reported to the jobsite.

 BREININGER v. SHEET METAL WORKERS, 493 U.S. 67 (1989) -- US Supreme Court Cases from Justia & Oyez
The hiring hall is "nonexclusive" in that workers are free to seek employment through other means, and employers are not restricted to hiring persons recommended by the union.
In the hiring hall context, the Board may bring a claim alleging a violation of 8(b)(1)(A) against the union, and a parallel suit against the employer under 8(a)(3), without implicating the duty of fair representation at all.
Hiring is deemed to be "exclusive," for example, if the union retains sole authority to supply workers to the employer up to a designated percentage of the work force or for some specified period of time, such as 24 or 48 hours, before the employer can hire on his own.

 FAIR: : Success in Suffolk County Hiring Hall Fight
In Suffolk County, New York, illegal aliens and their supporters were dealt a blow last month, when the county legislature’s proposal to fund a hiring hall for day laborers, many of whom are illegal aliens, was vetoed by the county executive.
Catholic Charities of Suffolk had asked for money from the county to build a hiring hall, which, by providing a place for employers to hire laborers for a day’s work without checking their immigration status, would likely harbor illegal aliens.
When over 100 immigration reform activists filled the county legislature’s meeting hall for its all day meeting on overriding the veto, their voice and presence changed the minds of several legislators, and the attempted override failed, leaving Gaffney’s veto intact.

 Re: S.F. Marriott 4th St. & the Local 2 Hiring Hall Extras   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Therefore, I feel somewhat competent to generally respond to your question even though I was not one of the three or four volunteer Hiring Hall "A List" members who actually served, for many years and much to their surprise may I add, on the Marriott Negotiating Committee.
Basically their marching orders from the Hall members were to get us into the "Jukebox," which is what that ugly Marriott building is called, as extras as soon as realistically possible.
However, they also understood from many of us at the Hall, from Casey, and from the incredibly tough and excellent Marriott Workers Committee, that many of the key "pro-union" people inside the Marriott were in-house banquet extra "extras" dragooned from other departments to serve banquets alongside the real steady extras at the Marriott.

There we considered and rejected the argument that O'Neill undermined the standard governing a union's operation of an exclusive hiring hall--specifically the principle that a union operate a hiring hall by "reference to objective criteria." 50 F.3d at 32-33.
That position is premised on the conclusion that O'Neill generally precludes heightened scrutiny in the hiring hall context, but in Plumbers & Pipe Fitters we concluded that the "Court did not intend to weaken the standard of review applied to a union's operation of a hiring hall." 50 F.3d at 33.
On remand, the Board must consider whether, given the union's heightened duty of fair dealing in the context of a hiring hall, the union's negligent failure to adhere to its referral standards was an unfair labor practice.

The bases for the rights of hiring users are, instead, Sections 8 (b) (1) - (A) and 8 (b) (2) of the National Labor Relations Act, particularly section 8 (b) (1) (A), which requires unions to abide by what is called the duty of fair representation.
