Each apprentice is assured of a minimum wage that is 50% of the existing minimum rate for the Journeyman Machinist, which has been established at $19.00 per hour. At the conclusion of 6 months of training, and a satisfactory report for on-the-job-training and classroom instruction, the student will be eligible for a 5% increase.
Apprentices will be reviewed before the committee at this time for a progress report before a wage increase is officially granted. Following each 6 month period thereafter, up to the 7th period of apprenticeship, wage increases will be granted under the same condition. Wage increases for the 7th and 8th periods of apprenticeship amount to 10% each.
For the Apprentice
During your apprenticeship, you may not change your place of employment without first seeking approval from the UAC. If you are terminated from employment, for any reason, you must notify the UAC via the Apprentice Program Coordinator.
The apprentice must show satisfactory progress in related training in addition to satisfactory performance on the job. The employer will make every effort to continue training their apprentice.
You will be expected to work diligently and cooperatively with your employer and make regular progress toward journeyman status. A record of adverse reports from your employer will be cause for explanation before the committee and possible action by the committee. Should it develop that you are not suited for the machinist trade, the committee in fairness to you and your employer, will remove you from the apprenticeship program.
Your apprenticeship agreement requires that you regularly attend classes in related instruction. Classes are conducted one evening a week for a total of 4 hours. The school year is from September to May with time off for Winter and Spring Breaks and Holidays. Accumulative hours of training provided total 144 hours per year 576 hours for 4 years, 288 hours for 2 year certificate.
At the start of each semester the apprentice will be notified when his/her related class will begin. Apprentices are expected to attend all class sessions. No more than 8 hours of instruction can be missed in any semester for any reason. All work must be made up when a class is missed. Apprentices missing more than 8 hours in a semester may be dropped from the class and required to repeat the semester.
A 'C' or better is considered a passing grade. Apprentices receiving a 'D' grade or worse in any semester may be required to repeat the semester before advancing.
