Hey everyone,

I am confused regarding Local 363, is the apprentice program 5 years or 6 years? After that point do I got to full Journeyman rates?

Also, does anyone have info on the pay scale. I looked through this site and the closest I found was 2008 rates of $39 plus about $20 in the bennies. I know apprentice rates can be scary low, but I have to put in my time. Just want to know what I'm looking forward to.

Thanks in advance!!

Apprentice wages are a percentage of the "A" wages changing every 6 months, IMO apprentice wages are decent pay for starting green in any trade.

Sorry I have no direct input for the local you are asking about.

Thank you! I tried to do some online research and I'm pretty loss with rates. Do you have information on the rates during the apprenticeship? Also what is the jump once I finish the program? Any information is helpful.

well I am a 4th year apprentice in 363 and am making 23.50 an hour which I feel is pretty fantastic. (doesn't hurt that I love my job :D) JW make about 41 an hour. When you start out as an apprentice it is pretty rough at less than 10 bucks an hour. They reorganized the apprenticeship so that there is 2 years of labor history classes before you become indentured and officially start the program (we dont have ce/cw's here) where you will be making less than 10 an hour. so its hard to start off, but at 3rd year you will be making a lil more than 20 an hour.
