The Electrical Alliance is hiring for a Electrician Apprentice job in Washington,DC
We’re Wired Differently … Are You?
Not everyone connects with science and math, but we do. In fact, we have a passion for it. The traditional classroom experience, however? That we’re less enthusiastic about—not to mention the thousands of dollars in student loans that can come with it.
As licensed electricians who’ve come up through the Joint Apprenticeship Training Committee (JATC) electrical program, we live life hands-on, working on some of the most fascinating and complex electrical projects around Washington, D.C., Virginia and Maryland. And because we entered this well-paying, in-demand field through the JATC, we acquired our training completely tuition-free. It also means we’re now skilled Electrical Alliance union contractors, receiving competitive pay and benefits, and continued education not available to non-union electricians.
Top 3 reasons to pursue a career in electrical through the JATC:
* Excellent pay: Not only can your expertise never be outsourced, but you can earn over $96,000, plus $40,300 in benefits, annually upon completion of our five-year apprenticeship program.
* Award-winning training: The JATC program combines on-the-job training with classroom work to create a fast-paced learning experience that will keep you engaged.
* No student loans: Learn tuition-free with nothing to repay and even earn along the way—$57,540 as a first-year apprentice!

About The Electrical Alliance
The Electrical Alliance is a cooperative effort between skilled craftsmen and electrical contractors to provide quality products and services to customers and to set the standard for efficiency and productivity within the electrical industry. Electrical Alliance contractors deliver a better-trained and better-supervised workforce comprised of electricians who receive intensive classroom and on-the-job training. The benefit for clients is a better quality project, delivered on time and within budget -- every time.
How The Electrical Alliance Was Started In 1997, over 150 union electrical contractors joined members of Local 26, IBEW to form the Electrical Alliance by adopting a Memorandum of Understanding for Achieving Excellence. In it, both labor and management pledged "their cooperation and support to promote a healthy and continuing growth of business in the Washington, D.C. area and its outlying areas."
The Memorandum outlines numerous commitments to accomplish the Alliance goals.
These commitments include:
- No work stoppages, strikes or lockouts.
- Produce the best quality installation for the money - on time and within budget.
- Avoid overtime except under extenuating circumstances.
- Prevent unnecessary or inefficient work practices.
- Abide by all appropriate Federal, state, and local safety regulations.
- Continue supporting the training program for apprentices, journeymen and supervisors to guarantee an adequate supply of trained personnel to meet manpower needs.
