This is an opportunity for skilled journeyman and those wanting to go through an apprenticeship to join the Carpenters Union in the Omaha, NE area. www.northcountrycarpenter.org
UBC Carpenters are seeking experienced Journeyman Carpenters with prior experience in steel stud rocker/framing, fire proofing, ceiling grid installation, concrete, general carpentry skills, and those looking to learn the trade of Carpentry and Interior Systems to join our organization. If you want to learn about or are an experienced Carpenter in the field of commercial carpentry, this opportunity is for you. The pay is $24.94 on the check and an additional $14.45 benefit package that includes health care, pensions, and training.
Carpenters are some of the first workers on a job site, and some of the last to leave. They assist in site preparation; build concrete forms and decks; frame walls and roofs; hang interior and exterior walls; install windows, doors, acoustical ceilings, cabinetry, counter tops and trim; and install locks, hardware and specialty furniture.
Carpenters work on almost any construction site imaginable, including new construction and remodeling, such as single-family homes; condominium and apartment projects; office towers, corporate and industrial buildings; new and remodeled hospitals, malls, stores and offices; and public projects such as stadiums, arenas, roads, bridges, schools and university buildings.
Carpenters need more than just good math and geometry skills; they have to be tough and flexible, able to work indoors or out, in the summer heat and humidity or in the bitter cold and snow of winter.
Carpenters work in five general areas:
- Wood Framing, including residential framing layout, residential wall framing, stairs, roof framing, roof trusses and floor trusses
- Interior Systems, including wood-and metal-framed wall partitions, framed soffits, metal jamb installation, suspended ceilings and soffits, clean rooms, demountable partitions, and raised floors
- Concrete Form Work, including footings, column pads, column forms, wall forms, slab and deck forms, beam and girder forms, deck and edge forms for bridges, and stair forms
- Exterior Finish, including siding, wood and vinyl soffits, asphalt shingles, doors, and window units
- Interior Finish, including basic cabinet installation, countertops, shelving, paneling, trim, door hanging, and commercial hardware (door closers, panic devices, latch and lock sets, including low-voltage applications)
Carpenters must also learn other vital skills, including First Aid and OSHA safety; scaffolding; blueprint reading; using a transit, level and laser; operating equipment such as fork lifts and aerial lifts; and setting up conventions and other interior displays.
Interior Systems work includes steel stud and drywall, acoustical ceilings, insulators, floor coverers and lathers.
Floor Coverers are specialists in the preparation, installation and finishing of commercial and residential carpet, wood, laminate, resilient tile, vinyl, cork, rubber and other professional flooring.
Floor Coverers are experts on the intricacies of installing the simplest to the most sophisticated floor surfaces. Through national participation in the INSTALL program, they receive direct, custom training from some of the top manufacturers in the industry. They not only gain certification directly from the manufacturer, but are first in line to become qualified with their newest flooring products and techniques.
Floor Coverers almost always work indoors in a conditioned environment. Safety is crucial since they often work with a variety of glues, mastics, and cleaning and preparation materials. Floor Coverers usually work in teams.
Good preparation for the trade includes basic math and geometry skills. Drafting, woodworking and art training are also useful.
Lathers perform basic plaster and stucco installation, but they also create by hand the architectural features that bring beauty to buildings: graceful and ornate arches, curves, domes, barrel ceilings and columns. When you see unusual structural forms or dramatic faux landscaping, you can be sure a lather is behind it.
