    Here is the local union which is Local 33, rates are bound by the employer and are not all that great as compared to a non union shop. Take it from someone who knows.

    Thanks! question though, lets say, to work for Carrier you would have to be in the sheet metal workers union? I tried the "union contractors" link on that site and it didn't work. What non-union service contractors would you recommend?

    Does include JCI, York, Carrier, Honeywell,Seimens and many more.

    I don't think I should post specific names and numbers on the site but the generic numbers that you can find in a yellow pages book will get you the main line then ask for a business agent.
