Skilled Trades

This UAW department addresses the special issues and concerns of members in Skilled Trades classifications. It’s involved in bargaining agreements and providing special assistance and advice to UAW local unions, regions and other national departments.

The department has the sole authority for issuing journeyman cards to certify skilled trades workers and routinely performs in-plant inspections to determine which craft cards are appropriate for the site. It also deals with such issues as technology and registered Apprenticeship Programs through the U.S. Department of Labor and State Apprenticeship Councils. It provides staff support to the 24-member council (ISTAC), which advises the International Executive Board on skilled trades policy matters, including the recommendation of new card classifications.

Skilled Trades Coordinator
