    I see you, you liar. I knew you are too small to admit you are wrong.

    The starting pay for me was at $17,50 p.h as CE2 and $24 as journey man once I pass the exam in a 1 1/5 year. Not so good right? As you can see I am in a difficult situation and trying to sort out what is the best or have a better chance of success and advancement.
    What is the salary for aprtentice in local3? what is the chances to join? do electricians stay long unemployed for a long time ? I do have a certification from Greece since 1992 as they told me from Local 3, it makes no difference here. And I must start from the beginning and it not so bad since I havent working as electrician the last 10 years so i dont mind. My target is a career, learn and become journeyman and foreman if possible. What do you thing i should do? What is the better path for me? im new in US but not new in age, time is not in my side. dont take me wrong i know things needs time and i have to give it some time for something good, just telling you this so you know better my situation.
    Thank you in advance

    Hello Ice.
    I have been following your posts and replies, you are very helpful. I would like your opinion about a specific matter that I have encountered.
    I just received a letter from local 3 about their apprentice program application process. (It is about to enroll new apprentices). I know already it's a long shot to join, they are only going to accept 300 applicants. Currently I am working as an electrician helper in a good non union company but to join the union is my goal. I have applied ever since i came to the US (2 years ago).
    My salary is not good for NY standards especialy with two kids so when I heard for a union opening in NC I went. They made me take an evaluation test before taking their aptitude test for their apprentice program. Based on my score which wasn't bad the director mentioned that I can be placed as a CE 2 worker and I shouldn't start the program from the beginning. The union in Charlotte is fairly small and not so strong as Local 3 in NY.

    took my physical for local 3 on dec 18th i stopped smoking 6 months prior and was taking herbal vitamins. Long story short I got accepted into the union went to orientation jan 14 and by jan 22 they mailed a letter saying i failed the toxicology report. I called and the lady was very nasty and said there is nothing she can do.

    Hello Ice,
    I received the same letter as Soprano. Does that mean that we will be accepted into the Jan/Feb class or if were still on a waiting list? Just curious because I need to know how to plan with my job and school.

    Hi there. Firstly, welcome to the site. Now...I believe it means you've made it back in...no easy feat let me tell you. I'm an instructor here at the local, teach Apprentice and Journeyman classes. Let me look into it and ill get back to you ok?

    I'd also like to add when I was in the program I got to 2nd year as far as school if I get back in I'm sure I would start over.

    As far as the college part I have 3 classes towards the local 3 schooling and I'm at QCC going for my liberal arts associates degree. I have 72 credits and I have one sem left before I graduate in the spring would that transfer over so I wouldn't have to do the college part.

    I'd figure I'd message you since you seem to know a lot about the union
    here's my ?

    I took the test in may 09 and had my Interview in July 09 for Local 3 IBEW NYC. I just called today to see what's up. After looking up my name and social(last 4) she said people are Ranked. I know there is probably a long wait. She did say you will get a letter this week and her words were "follow the directions of the letter" what could that mean. could it mean I got in and not to quit my job until they call me and could it be info for the physical and drug test etc.

    I was in local 3 about 10 years ago and I screwed it up the 1st time. I remember getting my letter right after 9-11-11 and it stating not to quit your job, we will contact your further for physical etc etc. I started school Jan 02 and started work June 02.

    I can wait 6 months or so as long as I know I got in. any ideas!
