  • Training & Apprenticeship
    TRAINING AT THE UNION HALL IS COMPLETED FOR THE SEASON. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO UPDATED THEIR CERTIFICATIONS OR WHO TOOK CLASSES FOR THE FIRST TIME.

    TRAINING CLASSES

    >>Training classes are available for FREE to all members of Laborers' Local 621!<<

    Like any industry, construction continues to evolve and change. Work opportunities that were once in high demand may decrease over time, and jobs we never dreamt possible may suddenly be on the forefront of the industry. That's why we must stay on top of our training; no matter how much the construction industry changes, we make sure our workforce stays ahead of the curve.

    Our training classes are offered by the Upstate NY Laborers Training Center, and at the Laborers' Local 621 Union Hall.

    APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM
    Apprenticeship is the process of a learning a skilled trade through on-the-job training (hands-on experience) plus related classroom instruction. An Apprentice operates under the close supervision of a skilled laborer on the job and takes related classroom instruction. A graduated pay scale assures that salary reflects the degree of skill achieved.


    The Laborers' Local 621's Skilled Construction Craft Laborer Apprenticeship Recruitment Program is a 24 month program that has potential openings every two years. Our last Apprenticeship Recruitment was held from February 5 - March 14, 2019; and is now complete. Thank you to everyone who applied.


    The following entrance requirements are set forth to comply with New York State employment requirements, insurance regulations, and to ensure the safety & well-being of the Apprentice:

    • Minimum of 18 years of age
    • Be in good health
    • High school diploma or a high school equivalency diploma
    • Reliable transportation to worksites throughout Local 621's jurisdiction and to training classes
    • Valid driver's license
    • US citizen
    • Must be able to pass a non-DOT drug test
    • Be physically able to perform heavy and/or prolonged lifting

    If you meet all the requirements, you are welcome to participate in our Apprenticeship Recruitment Program. During the recruitment period, applicants must complete an application for employment and pass a basic math test at one of the participating New York State Department of Labor offices. After successful completion of both, the applicant may be called in to interview with the Apprenticeship Recruitment team. Applicants are scored based on the following:

    • Educational Achievement
    • Work Experience
    • Seniority (years of employment with the sponsoring firm)
    • Job Aptitude
    • Ability to communicate
    • Willingness to accept obligation of Apprenticeship
    • Ability to reason and comprehend
    • Interest and motivation

    Interviewed applicants will then be placed on an Apprenticeship Rank List with the highest scoring applicant ranked first. The rank list is continually updated and, should Apprentices be called, calling will start from the top of the list. The list of candidates will remain effective for a maximum of one (2) years, in which an applicant would have to re-apply should they still want to be considered for the Apprenticeship Program.

    Laborers' Local 621 is an Equal Opportunity Employer. The recruitment, selection, employment, and training of Apprentices during their apprenticeship shall be without discrimination because of age (40 or older), sexual orientation, genetic information, disability, race, color, religion, national origin, or sex (including pregnancy and gender identity). Laborers' Local 621 takes affirmative action to provide equal opportunity. We are a Union with no cultural, religious, or gender boundaries. Everyone is welcome!
