Union millwrights are the rock stars of the construction industry. They are an elite group of industrial mechanics whose skills are unmatched by any other construction worker.
It all starts with an apprenticeship.
An apprentice is a person in the process of becoming a skilled millwright via training and experience. Apprentices study in the classroom at a local training center and on actual job sites under the guidance of a skilled veteran, called a “journeyman.” Usually, an apprenticeship takes four years to complete. When you graduate, you become accredited from the United States Department of Labor, confirming your status as a journeyman millwright.
