    it's nice to be gung-ho about getting a job, but you are now part of a larger entity that has rules and regs. to help ALL members........educate yourself on what the process is, then find ways to work within it to accomplish your goals.
    Who are you directing your statement too?

    a registered apprentice is allowed to solicit work, for local 787 anyway.

    Hello ! I am curious if you have obtained a job? I have recently become a member myself but after calling a majority of contractors I have been told that they are not hiring right now. Also I have heard they are continuously accepting new members anyway.

    I am about to join the 787 now after already being in the trade for 8 years. I got my 313A and G1. I did it how jrmech had mentioned, found a union company and did an interview, they wanted me and were willing to go through the process mentioned to hire me. They told the union that they can't find the skill sets i have within the unemployed members of 787 and that is why they are looking externally.

    Unionized UA contractors are allowed to hire outside the hall if the union has no suitable candidate to offer, now you must be careful dealing with the contractor directly cause they can place you on a lower pay&benefits scale and you will end doing the same work as your fellow union brothers for a lot less money and when you are classified as ..?? getting out and moving up is extremely difficult. I mean what they are offering you now may seem like a good deal compared with what you are making working non-union but in the long term is not such good thing, if they really want you make them pay nothing less than BTJ scale.
