ABOUT APPRENTICESHIP

The United Association has the first nationally registered joint apprenticeship program dating back to 1936 in the United States, and is now proudly entering its seventh decade.
Individuals who enter a United Association five-year apprenticeship program are part of a select group of men and women motivated to learn a complex and challenging trade while upholding the ideals of trade unionism. Applicants are evaluated on the same fair basis, without regard to race, sex, national origin or religious affiliation.

APPRENTICESHIP

An apprenticeship is a training agreement between you, the employer and the government. The agreement is for 5 periods of approximately 1800 hours each, totaling 9000 hours, although this may be reduced depending on education and trade related work experience. You will be required to attend Trade School at a community college 3 times for 8 weeks each, over the 5 terms of the apprenticeship. Upon the completion of the specified hours within your contract, and the successful completion of all the required Trade School, you will be invited to write a Certification of Qualification exam, which, if successful, will confer upon you a Journeyman's Certificate of Qualification in your chosen trade.

The wages scale as prescribed by provincial regulation, are based on a Journeyman's

  1st year

  40% of Journeymen base rate

  2nd year

  50% of Journeymen base rate

  3rd year

  60% of Journeymen base rate

  4th year

  70% of Journeymen base rate

  5th year

  85% of Journeymen base rate

In addition to the government prescribed rate scale, as a Union apprentice, you would receive the following:

Health and Welfare
Medical and Dental Coverage
Pension
Training
Supplementary Unemployment Benefits
10% Vacation Pay
And Much more
