We have work for journeymen linemen and other classifications as well.

Check list of things to bring: current dues receipt, current driver’s license, copy of social security card, current First Aid & CPR card (online training is not accepted by OSHA) and letter of introduction from your home local.

NEWS FLASH: A new law, now in effect, requires any new employee that has a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) to be registered in a new database. The CDL holder must register themselves in the system before an employer can hire them. For our outside construction members, pre-registering can eliminate any potential issues when taking a new employer referral. Learn more here.
