We're not a food plant. We manufacture recyclable plastic containers and lids.
Master Electrician is an Asset, not a requirement yet would allow us to have Apprentices as well.

Thanks for the interest. It depends on experience.
That is quite a political response.

I will tell you no point in-applying when rate is unknown and working in a union shop at non union benefits and rate.

but you want.
PLC.
Mechanical.
Masters, electrician.
Industrial. Applications.

this skill level is not cheap.

Journeyman certification will allow you to have a apprenticeship. Just not to pull permits.

You only need a 309A to have an apprentice

That would be really uncomfortable, being the scab they brought in to lower overall wages and workers rights.
Thanks for the comment @yankeejoe1141, however inaccurate.
This is no way is a 'scab' position, and definitely not to lower wages and/or workers rights.
Not being part of the collective agreement, allows us more flexibility, including paying market rates for the talent.
We have a great culture and environment with many 40+year employees

Thanks again for your comments and interest.

40+ years sounds a bit suspicious.
I'm in one of those union places that hired out all the trades. I'm safe but nounion trades will never work here again. It's shameful but cheaper. Speaking of cheaper, you get what you pay for, the non union guys are not vested and do absolutely the bare minimum, upstairs is okay with that though. Are the lights on, yes, good enough.

Thanks but if you have union and non-union in one workplace you are creating two “classes” of employees, the haves and the have nots.

Is it hourly, or is it salary?

It certainly sounds like they are trying to reclassify a union electrician job as a non-union job, and not pay overtime. Eventually they'll replace enough of the union labor with non-union and decline to renew their contract. Hopefully the union has sicked their lawyers on them.

I'd rather work at a non-union shop that's trying to do better for their employees, than work non-union in a union shop that's trying to do worse.

It's funny, they say it's not really different, but then why is there a difference? They say now they can pay market rate for talent, if market rate was more they'd keep their mouth shut and pay lower so I definitely feel like it's a tactic to pay less. Because in their eyes the union contract has inflated the pay above what they think is "market rate".
