What is an Apprentice?
An apprentice is a worker who learns a craft through planned, supervised work on the job in conjunction with receiving planned related technical instruction. Apprentices are taught the proper use, care and safe handling of tools and equipment used in connection with their work. Furthermore, while working on the job and acquiring an important skill, an apprentice is a regular part of the work force.
Apprentice earn regular wage increases
Apprentices earn while learning. The more they learn the higher the pay. Generally, apprentices are paid 50 percent of the journey worker's wage to start. As they increase their job skills, their wages are increased. At the successful completion of the term of apprenticeship, they become journey workers and receive full pay for their skills.

Why Union Apprenticeship
The American Federation of Labor reports that union members enjoy pay rates that are up to 30 percent higher than non-union members, while the odds of having a guaranteed pension increases for union members by more than 50 percent. This is partly because unions enable workers to indicate what benefits workers need the most
Unions also make it harder for employers to terminate employees unfairly. This means that union members have better job security than non-union members. This job security gets even better when one considers that unions often will place unemployed union members in new jobs if possible.
Being part of a union is a first step in receiving better working conditions. Unions take steps to make sure that all employees, not just union members, are safe and that employers adhere to labor laws.
Union members are entitled to a vote on union issues. In other words, union members influence the union, which in turn influences employers. Even if unions are unable to secure better pay, working conditions, benefits or job security, unions are able to guarantee that upper management hears the opinions of union members and is aware of member needs. This union advantage is beneficial because it can boost moral and make employees feel empowered, even if employers can't meet every demand. It opens lines of communication that greatly reduce workplace stress and conflict. Additionally, unions often provide legal counsel for members, which greatly aids union members if they are faced with the unpleasant task of taking their employer to court.
