An Analysis of Traditional Routes of Entry into Selected Construction Unions
MetadataShow full item record
Focus is on the relatively narrow issue of entry into the unions. Who is allowed to join the construction unions, and what are the procedures which must be followed in order to Join? What standards must be met· by prospective journeymen? By prospective apprentices? By members of other local unions who wish to transfer their memberships? What are the procedures involved in allowing nonmembers to work in a union's jurisdiction? Do these procedures change as conditions in the labor market change? If so, do the procedures facilitate or frustrate the workings of the market? What are the backgrounds of the mechanics who enter the trades in various ways? Do the better craftsmen enter the unions through some routes more than others, and if so, why? What policy implications may be drawn from an analysis of the above questions, especially with regard to the expediting of minority hiring and upgrading within the building trades?
