AFFILIATIONS & PARTNERS
Local 79 Apprenticeship Recruitment
We are taking applicants for the position of Skilled Construction Craft Laborer. We hope to accept up to 100 Apprentices in the next 5-8 months.
- 18 years of age HS diploma or GED/TASC
- Physically capable of performing the work
- Pass a pre-entrant drug screening at your expense (provided you have already been selected into the program)
Beginning on August 3, 2018 for 10 business days (or until we have 2,000 applicants) from 9:00 AM through 10:00 AM, go to www.MTTF.Org (yes, you must type WWW). You will see directions to apply. You may apply only ONE TIME, during these ten days.
If you believe you are going to move in the next 12 months, please use 2 different addresses, one that is very consistent (i.e. a family member that hasn’t moved in many years and will let you know as soon as mail arrives). You will be mailed one letter to each address, at the same time. This does not give you two separate applications but it does eliminate a problem if you have difficulties getting your mail.
Fill out the form no different than if you were ordering a product online. When you complete the process, you will receive a confirmation email. Then you wait for a letter in the mail asking you to come to our site to schedule yourself for an interview. (This could take up to 18 months depending on economic conditions). Everyone that applies will be mailed a letter of invitation for an interview. These names will be drawn at random, when needed from the end of this recruitment through the next 6-18 months.
PLEASE NOTE: More applicants will apply than we can fit in our pool of candidates. If you do not get through this time, please understand. We hope work is plentiful and we can have recruitment again in a few months time.
