Welcome to Ohio Laborers Apprenticeship
Is a career as a laborer right for you?
- Do you want to make real money now?
- Do you question the actual value of a traditional four-year college?
- Would you like to work outside and not be stuck in a cubicle?
- Do you want to be part of a team that has your back?
If you answered yes to these questions, then a career as a Construction Craft Laborer may be right for you. This information will introduce you to the Ohio Laborers Apprenticeship Program, highlight some of the reasons to become an Ohio Laborer, and outline how worry-free the process is to get started in the construction industry.
Through a combination of classroom and on-the-job training, new members gain the skills to become a Construction Craft Laborer. LIUNA requires all new members to participate in a comprehensive apprenticeship program consisting of 4,000 hours of on the job training with an additional 432 hours of classroom training. Through this program, men and women gain the necessary skills for building a career.
All training is provided at no additional cost to qualified candidates, and apprentices are paid according to a schedule based on training and experience. Pay raises are given after each period of 1,000 hours of work and 144 hours of training. We do not discriminate by race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, age 40 or older, genetic information or disability. Organizationally, we are always seeking those who are dedicated, motivated, and loyal to the brothers and sisters that make up the Laborers’ Union.
