Celebrating 2022 Graduating Apprentices!

Local 7 logo

Brothers and Sisters,

We’re proud to congratulate the 96 newest graduates of the Local 7 JATC, who concluded their apprenticeship program officially in a ceremony on Thursday. These graduates have learned our trade over three years of our industry-leading training program, and we are thrilled to usher them into the next phase of their careers as licensed journeypersons. 

After completing their training, these graduates are exceptionally well prepared to excel on project sites throughout the region. They have persevered through the pandemic with the trademark grit and resilience of iron workers, and now, they join the ranks of our union’s skilled, hardworking, driven Local 7 professionals. We can’t wait to see the tremendous contributions they will make to our union and to our region going forward.
 
Please join us in extending a heartfelt congratulations to our graduates!
