Laborers Recruit Apprentices

We want to thank everyone who applied to be a part of our program.

We are sorry but due to high demand, our pool of applicants has been filled.

The demand to enter our program is a true testament to our Union and our Responsible Contractors who build NYC safely and efficiently.

We only have enough space for 2,000 applicants at this time and from there we only have placement for approximately 200 applicants.

We hope to have another recruitment in about a year’s time.

We are Laborers and we know the feeling of being out of work and how frustrating that is. Please check the New York State Department of Labor’s website at labor.ny.gov. The site has a page that lists all current apprentice recruitments in New York State. It is a great place to find an opportunity for any apprentice program.
