I think there were a few, but I heard they are going bankrupt.. Something about right to work, and nobody paying dues. Good luck!

Most every local hand I ever met had family before them in the local. However the company I worked for still paid the apprentices for a full day when they left early for their skoolin.

I took the test years ago and had an interview but they seemed to have an issue with me having worked for a split shop and never called me. Most of the union guys I worked with at the time had family to get them in. Back when the new stadiums & casinos were being built they would take about any journeymen into the union. Last I heard since all of that work dried up most of those people are gone and there are a lot of guys on the books not working.
