Ironworkers Local 378 J.A.T.C.
Local 378 apprentices earn while they learn, working on the job alongside the Journeymen. In addition, they attend classes of related and supplemental instruction, approximately 200 hours per year for four (4) years. Starting wages for ironworker apprentices are 50% of a journeyman’s wage. As an apprentice accumulates an established number of on-the-job hours plus related and supplemental instruction hours, wages are increased at regular intervals. Graduating apprentices attain journeyman status and receive full pay for the skills they have earned.
