The Greater Cincinnati Apprenticeship Council (GCAC) is an organization of union building trade apprenticeship program directors. Our purpose is to educate the community about the value of apprenticeship and the benefits of a career in the building trades industry.
Apprenticeship is the gateway to many career opportunities which offer virtually unlimited advancement. The domestic and international job markets encompass many projects such as construction of hydroelectric dams, high-rise buildings, schools, hospitals, commercial facilities and interstate highways.
Rewarding careers in the union building trades industries are complimented by competitive wages, medical and life insurance benefits, secure local and national retirement programs and specialized quality training. These benefits are made possible by the joint efforts between labor and management in each trade.
The building trade union apprenticeship programs are described in the following career directory. Rewards and benefits of these careers are largely unmatched in today’s job market.
