I've now been off for 2 weeks since my last rotation and I'm still waiting for a call to go back to work. In addition, I haven't been indentured yet. I really don't want to look for another company but I came to make money, not sit on my ass 2 weeks out of every month. I currently have about 275 hours under my belt and just bought myself a $500 set of Klein electricians tools, so I'd be good to go with another company.

Just wondering if any of you have an opinion on this, or know of someone I could get in touch with for work? As a first year I know I don't have a lot of options but this is really discerning. If anyone can help PM me please, I've already started looking for companies hiring...

As per law you must be indentured ASAP otherwise they're using you as cheap labour and you have zero rights. 2 months is too long. You can file a complaint with AIT, if you choose.

When I was hired my boss mentioned something about 3 months before I would be indentured. I did some searching and research and found out, from the apprenticeship office, that there is no waiting period. The next day I handed him the form. Got it back the next day signed.

You're in the big leagues now. No on gives a shit about you. Take action.

Definitely going to do that, thanks man. I didn't realize I could get the papers myself, I will tomorrow.
