    I am not interested in the apprentice program however, I am interested in how to go about becoming a union member. I am moving from Ireland to NY in a few months. I have been working for Otis for almost 20 years here in Ireland, and have been a union member the whole time. I will be seeking employment in the lift industry. Any info you can provide will really be appreciated.
    Thank you,
    Darragh Maguire
