Apprentices are the future of our industry, and both Union Leaders and Contractors report that there are challenges in regards to the attitude, work ethic, and appearance of many new apprentices. With an investment of tens of thousands of dollars in each of these apprentices, and as our future rides on their success, we have to focus on more than skills. It is crucial to add attitude, work ethic, values and responsibility to the curriculum.
Every new apprentice needs to understand that the success, growth and future of union construction are in his or her hands.
