Local 355 Joint Apprenticeship Training Fund

Local 355ís Joint Apprenticeship Training Fundís apprenticeship program has been operating its NY State approved sheet metal program as well as its service program for several years and the first class of Journeymen graduates received their diplomas in spring 2009. The JATF has also received NY State approval for its sprinklerfitting, steamfitting, plumbing, and pipefitting programs. This was a tremendous victory for Local 355 after a long and hard won battle, since this program operates in direct competition with other unions who fought our approval. Knowing that our members pose a real threat to their livelihoods, these other unions attempted to block our program politically. However, through the perseverance and hard work of everyone involved with the JATF, we were able to obtain these additional approvals and provide new opportunities for our members.
