What? It's the SAME test.
It's only harder to get into the UA because they have such a surplus of workers that they don't take on new apprentices/workers as often.
How many new recuits do you think are going to start if they are 100+ journeymen on the bench?
I'm not even going to go there.I have talked to lot of tin knockers and they do not seem to have the same pride in their union as the UA brothers and sisters, of course there are exceptions.
