Apprenticeships

What do our electrical apprentices do?
Electrical apprentices will plan, assemble and install all electrical apparatuses, equipment, fixtures and wiring used in electrical systems for maintenance, renovation and new construction projects. Other tasks may include installation, connecting and troubleshooting of electrical machinery, control devices, industrial equipment and signal communications systems.

Electrical apprentice wages and benefits
The collective bargaining agreement determines the Journeyman pay rate. All apprentice pay rates are based on a percentage of the Journeyman rate at the time of indenture.

The collective bargaining agreement provides a national pension and healthcare at the time of indenture. Upon completion of probationary period, a local pension and profit sharing plan will become effective.

Employment
Electrical contractors are affiliated with IBEW Local Union 64, and are not necessarily based in the Youngstown area. All job assignments should be considered temporary, as there is no guarantee of continuous employment.
