Our apprentices say it best!

“I’ve never picked up a tool a day in my life and now I can’t seem to put them down. The Union has given me the opportunity to learn and perfect a trade and guide me with my career path.”

Robert Garcia
“My apprenticeship allows me to work and learn simultaneously. It presents tasks and challenges you could never find in a classroom, building up the skills and experience necessary for my chosen career.”

Robbie Dominguez
"This job has changed my way of living as an apprentice. I am learning to
work like a professional."

"I thank the union for giving me the opportunity to become a construction worker so I can provide for my family and myself. I also thank the apprenticeship program for giving me the skills for success…"

D. Ramsey
Apprentice 3rd Stage
"Since joining the Union I have learned so much. The wonderful teachers and support staff at LU1247 have provided me with skills that allow me to plan for my future and retirement. You are not only joining a great Union you will be a part of a family that supports one another. My only regret is that I didn't join the Union sooner!"

Harry Arutyunyan

"I started with the union after high school. It's been about a year and a half and I am making almost $20 an hour… I know in another year I will be making even more money."
