The apprenticeship will include time you work on the job under the supervision of a journey-level skilled worker and classroom time through a union training center. At the completion of your apprenticeship, you will be a journey-level skilled worker.
In addition to earning a great wage, as a member of a trade union you will receive health and dental insurance, be enrolled into a pension plan, and earn time off toward vacation time.
