the ua will be taking apprenticeship applications in January. follow this link for info www.uanj.org/recruitment_complete.html read the requirements carefully and make sure you have all documentation they ask for, or you will not be given an application.
an additional word on the uanj recruitment- 75 applications available per local. in a good economy, they are usually gone by the end of the first day of availability. In the current job market, expect them to be gone much sooner than that, so make sure you are in line early.
