  • Overhaul/installation of mechanical and electrical equipment on a predictive/preventative and breakdown basis

(under review) and we compensate dual-ticketed journeymen with an additional $2.00/hr. premium plus shift premiums ($0.45/hr.).  Note: the extra hours generated by 12-hour shifts result in an additional 10% income (approx.) compared to a standard 40-hour workweek.
