Members of the OH-KY ADC experience both financial security and job satisfaction while achieving a rewarding career. There are countless opportunities to work for the professional and licensed contractors signatory to our 19 local unions throughout Ohio and Kentucky. 

Our craftworkers enjoy numerous benefits, including:

  • Dependable benefits package
  • Fair wages
  • Safe working conditions
  • Superior training, both as an apprentice and upgrade training throughout their career
  • Healthcare
  • Pension and retirement benefits

The contracts between OH-KY ADC employers and workers allows for agreement on terms of fair wages, benefits and safety precautions that protect employees throughout their careers. These protections increase the strength of the workforce by ensuring that workers can easily approach management about issues and secure a fair settlement of any grievances.

All of our apprentices and journeymen receive OSHA training and upgrade training on a regular basis so they are aware of the most up-to-date safety precautions in the industry and are better prepared to avoid accidents, injuries and downtime. These protections increase the effectiveness of the workforce by increasing workers’ morale, productivity and motivation.

Apprentices within the OH-KY ADC “earn while they learn,” through both competitive, escalating wages and credit towards an Associate’s Degree offered by Cuyahoga Community College. To learn more about the OH-KY ADC apprenticeship program, please visit our Training page.
