Have some Questions about union in WA state
I have been in the trade for 3 years now and am at a crossraods. I pretty much am tring to move away from resi work and have heard a great way to do that is to join the union. I have a few questions. How long before the union starts taking new guys? Will i have to take a hefty paycut if I join? When I first applied I wasn't able to join because hadn't finished highschool ( I got my GED ) and didn't have a credit of algebra to my name. I have an 02 residential card and have been enrolled in an electrical training program and always get As in my class. Will that help or do I need to take seperate math classes to get in? I am pretty good when it comes to tests, I got a 95 on the NEC and a 94 on the RCW/WAC on my 02 exam.
I live in snohomish county so I would want to join local 191. If any one has some good advice I would appreciate it. PMs are welcome.
