49th Annual 4th Year Graduating Apprentice Open House/Exhibit

March 29, 2018

On Wednesday, March 28th, the NYCDCC Training Center (“CTC”) hosted its 49th Annual 4th Year Graduating Apprentice Open House/Exhibit. As in past years, the highly anticipated event once again served to not only showcase the skills apprentices have learned during their last four years at the CTC, but it also provided spirited competition, a platform for industry trends, and a demonstration for state-of-the-art tools.

Although there are a great deal of activities that take place at this event each year, center stage always belongs to the 4th Year Graduating Apprentice exhibit. As has been tradition since the event’s inception, dozens of apprentices took part in a friendly, but competitive event that challenged them to complete projects in their various trades. Carpenters, Floor Coverers, Interior Finishers, Millwrights, Timberman, and Dockbuilders all had opportunities to display the various skills they learned and sharpened during their time at the CTC.

The end results of the varying projects were awe-inspiring, as the event displayed the outstanding craftsmanship of the graduating class.

The NYCDCC Benefit Funds would like to extend its congratulations to the following participants and winners in the 49th Annual Graduating Apprentice Open House/Exhibit:

New OWL Skill: Build It Back 80% Skill

The District Council will be working closely with the NYC Build It Back Sandy Program to rebuild areas devastated by Hurricane Sandy.  These are work opportunities especially relevant to Members who live in the affected areas of Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island.  But the work is open to all Members of the NYCDCC.

The District Council recently implemented a new OWL Skill called the Build It Back Sandy 80% PLA Skill. This is a general skill for ALL crafts and involves doing building and repair work on one to three family residential and related structures that were destroyed or damaged by Hurricane Sandy.  The related skills necessary would include many carpentry skills recognized by the OWL, including:

Concrete Forms, Vinyl Siding, Flooring, Window Trim, House Framing

The work is in an area of building and construction that the District Council has not been previously involved, and it is under a PLA paying 80% of the standard rates under applicable collective bargaining agreements.  This is a great opportunity to secure work in a new market in our geographical jurisdiction while giving back to our community.  We encourage all Members who are interested to add this skill to their list of skills on the OWL.

OWL Rules as of December 15, 2017
