Default Experience With Electrician Unions

Hello. I am new here and considering applying to a local electrician union as an apprentice. If anyone has a positive or negative thoughts or experiences with a union apprentice program that they would like to share, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Welcome to the forum! Like said if you search you will find a lot of information. I personally think if you are an apprentice the union is the way to go.
