How do I join the Union?


To become a union member, you must find employment with a union contractor. Upon initiating into the union, you will attend a membership orientation class where you will learn even more about the union.


Tips on finding employment with a union contractor:

•Go to the contractor's office, not the job site

•Bring your resume with you

•Be dressed and ready for work. Wear long pants (no holes, no cut-offs), t-shirt (no offensive phrases or graphics) and work boots (no tennis shoes).


Initiation Fee:

•Apprentice/Pre-Apprentice: $129.00

•Journeyperson: $369.00

•Past members: Additional $50.00 rejoin fee
