drywall finishers needed in the Kansas City area $28.35 on check ($44.81 total package) no per diem, pass a UA - text 816-215-5519 for info
We continue to find the manpower for drywall finishers for the work that is projected to start or that has already started. Myself, Dan Hink and a rep for the Carpenters UNION met with KC Kansas community college that has an introduction to construction course that introduces a student to construction as a whole but does not go to the depths that a certified apprenticeship does to train the student. It was a very good meeting that I believe will lead to opportunities to get manpower in the future. We have been invited to the next board meeting and a chance to speak with the students to let them know that we have opportunities for a career in the IUPAT. On this same topic John Tompson and I had a meeting with E&K that addresses their issues to man the jobs that are currently being performed.Read more
Anyone who is able to be bonded is eligible. Obviously we would like to have someone with cash handling experience. The applicant’s credit report will also be used in the hiring process. The hourly rate is dependent on experience but will probably be around $11 per hour to start with a raise possible after 6 months and at a year. The schedule is actually for 40.5 hours per week and the half hour is paid at time and a half. We offer excellent benefits. The position requires the applicant to work every Saturday from 8:15 to 12:15. They get a half day off on Mondays.
Brothers and Sisters,
We wanted to express our condolences to our Business Manager Secretary Treasurer Todd Doree on the loss of his father. Jim was a proud member of IUPAT DC3. Services for Jim will be on Friday October 31 at the Leavenworth National Cemetery at 1:30 pm with a Celebration of life to follow at the VFW Post 846 at 8804 Grant Ave.
