BUILD PROJECTS THAT MAKE HISTORY. BUILD YOUR CAREER WITH US.

Master a masonry craft and build your skills and confidence through the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers’ (BAC) free apprenticeship program.  You’ll earn while you learn your trade, getting paid while you train on-the-job and in the classroom.

Explore the benefits of a career in the trowel trades!

TAKE PRIDE IN BUILDING

Work with your hands and build projects that make history. As a bricklayer, tile setter, stone mason, marble mason, cement mason, terrazzo worker, plasterer or restoration specialist/pointer-caulker-cleaner, you can point with pride to the projects you’ve built in your community.

WORK AS A TEAM 

Be part of the team, working together to get the job done – out in the field, not behind a desk.  With constant innovations in safety and technology, the job site is changing every day.

Plus, when you join the union, you join a movement dedicated to creating better lives for working people everywhere. Your union brothers and sister will always support you at work and beyond!

ENJOY GREAT BENEFITS 

You’ll earn good pay, and great benefits like health, disability and life insurance. Pension and retirement savings programs will also help you secure your future. Keep in mind that even though you may join a local union in your hometown, you can also work in other cities and your benefits will travel with you.

ADVANCE YOUR CAREER

The apprenticeship program is just the beginning! Keep training in our continuing education programs to advance your career. You could be a foreman or superintendent running job sites, start your own business as a union contractor, be a union officer, teach the trade as an instructor, or develop your expertise with specialty certifications and training. The possibilities are endless!
