    Default relocating. best way to go about transfering locals?

    Hello. I have been in the plumbers and pipefitters local 300 for 2yrs now and have been working for the same company for four yrs. Im only registered as a 3rd yr apprentice because of my own fault.

    I have some relatives that live by gault,california and i have wanted to move but didnt have the funds too at the time. Now im making good money and have enough saved up i would like to but i have also got into the local 300.

    Im just curious whats the best way about going to get transfered to a different local and is it even possible? I know i dont have much of a say as a apprentice so i wanted some advice from other people who might of done the same. thanks

    Ah...... finally another union brother post's a question. Just becareful my friend, posting here you just jumped into a shark pit. But don't worry they don't have any teeth to bite. Talk with your B.A. at your current local and then contact where you want to move. They'll work with you. If it is in the same state you should not have an issue. Don't listen to any of the negative post's that shall arise, they have a bad case of union envy.

    No he pays me when I perform!
    And he does that very well because I perform very well.
    I also have a nice retirement package, vacation and health care insurance for my family...
    I love my job!

    Don's ask me because they changed the rules so I could not transfer. Someone asked one of the officials why they didn't want Chicago plumbers here. He said, "Because they think they know it all". He told the official, "But that is because they do."
