Insulators Local Union No. 24 - Apprenticeship


The purpose of this program is to provide proper and uniform training for persons who desire to become skilled journeymen through an orderly method of improving the mechanical skill and technical knowledge of apprentices in this industry. 

It is a five (5) year apprenticeship with four (4) years of schooling.  The schooling is held at our Apprenticeship Training Facility in the evenings, after work.  We offer our apprenticeship to anyone 18 years of age and older. 

Our trade consists of insulating heating and air conditioning systems, domestic water and plumbing pipes in commercial buildings, power plants, and sometimes residential developments.  The materials we use consist of fiberglass, calcium silicate, foamed rubber products, insulating foams and loose fill products. We are also in the asbestos abatement industry.  We are trained and certified in asbestos removal and fitted with proper safety equipment. 

Our union offers health and welfare benefits which include hospitalization coverage, physician's care, disability income and life insurance benefits.  We also have a dental plan and vision care.  We have a pension plan which presently is set up for our members so that they can retire after 30 years of service, regardless of age.  We feel that our plans are as good as any in our area. 

We also have a pre-apprenticeship program which we call our "Improver" program.  This person is in the Union but not in the Apprenticeship Program and is able to go to work on the same jobs and get a good feel for our trade while getting valuable on the job experience which could help him/her in becoming  accepted in the Apprenticeship program.
