Thinking of Joining the Union?

Plain City, OH, January 29, 2018– If you have an attention for detail, are goal oriented, and have basic knowledge of the Drywall Finishing and a willingness to learn as you earn, The International Union of Painters and Allied Trades (IUPAT) and our partner contractors would like to talk to you about a career in the construction industry! Join us on Thursday, February 8th from 4:00 to 7:00 PM at Painters Local Union 1275, 8700 Memorial Drive in Plain City, Ohio, for a special career fair and hiring event. Refreshments – along with on-the-spot job offers, will be provided.

Drywall finishers (or tapers) prepare unfinished interior drywall panels for painting and by taping and finishing joints and imperfections.  According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the job outlook for this field is very positive, due to the need to replace older baby boomers who will be retiring in the next several years. No formal education is necessary, on-the-job training and apprenticeship programs will be offered. This is a great opportunity to position yourself for a long-term career with IUPAT, that not only provides great pay but health insurance, a retirement plan, and career growth opportunities.

The event is sponsored by IUPAT District Council 6 and partner contractors Acoustic Ceiling & Partition of Ohio (ACP), OCP Contractors, OKI Interiors Corp, and Valley Interior Systems. Questions should be directed to Jamie Peppers, Director of Organizing, at jamiep@iupat-dc6.org .

To accelerate your ability to start employment immediately, interested candidates may want to bring a valid ID, and a resume or a listing of their work experience, to the hiring event.  Pre-registration is not required.
