When you are a part of a union, what you do for a living is more than just a job – it’s a career! As a union member, you receive training, benefits and a pension. There’s also an opportunity to earn a college degree in one of our programs as well. The best part is that you have a job while we train you, so you earn while you learn! Although a typical apprenticeship last three years, if you have experience in a craft it can be much shorter.
