Some members have have told us that the California Unemployment Insurance (UI) Online Application is difficult to complete because the job descriptions are confusing and generally irrelevant to what we do. Local 695 and the California IATSE Council (CIC) have been working on your behalf to solve this with the California Unemployment Insurance Department. They are required to use the federal government job classification descriptions, so we had to work with that reality to get the best solution possible. We are glad report that we’ve successfully negotiated with them some significant changes in Local 695’s job classifications to make this process easier for you. We also created a step-by-step presentation of how 695 members can apply online for CA UI with a page on job classifications to help you determine which one applies to you.
