Always be on time for work. Keep your vehicle in good mechanical condition so you will be able to drive long distance, if required.
You should be properly dressed and neatly groomed. You have been told and realize that you must conform to your employer’s requirements in dress and hair codes.
You are expected to have the proper work clothes, shoes, etc.
You are expected to furnish a minimum amount of hand tools.
You do not have a choice of jobs or the location of jobs. You may be required to report to or transfer from any employers as directed by the Apprenticeship Coordinator.
You understand and realize that due to the type of work or industry in which you may be placed, that you may not receive some facets of our trade in “On-The-Job-Training,” such as boiler experience in the cold storage industry or air conditioning in the bakery industry. This will not affect completion of your Apprenticeship.
The Joint Apprenticeship Committee has no way of guaranteeing that you have classes and schooling pertaining to all phases of the Operating and Maintenance Engineer’s Training program.
You will be issued an “Apprentice Daily Record” book and given instructions on completing the sheets, which must be done daily. At the end of the month you must mail or bring the completed and signed “Apprentice Daily Record” to the offices of the J.A.T.C. The “Apprentice Daily Records” are due on or before 15th of the following month for hours worked on the previous month.
Anytime you are injured or disabled, please contact the Apprentice office.
If you are assigned an unfamiliar job, admit that the process is new to you and tell your supervisor you will do your best.
YOU ARE EXPECTED TO ATTEND EVERY CLASS.
NARCOTICS OR ALCOHOL AND OPERATING ENGINEERS DO NOT MIX. TOO MANY OF THE JOBS YOU PERFORM REQUIRE A CLEAR HEAD AND GOOD JUDGEMENT. IF YOU USE UNPRESCRIBED NARCOTICS, SEEK EAP ASSISTANCE.
NEVER QUIT A JOB, or refuse a work assignment (EXCEPTIONS – SAFETY ISSUES). If you have a problem, do the job assigned to you as directed, and immediately contact your Training Director.
Remember you are from a select group, therefore dress, act, and speak in a respectable manner in the classroom, at Union meetings, and at work.
