Member Benefits

As a member of the Southern States Millwright Regional Council, you will earn competitive wages and collect excellent health and welfare benefits, including a retirement plan.

To make sure you are paid fairly for your skills, your wages, benefits and overtime pay are negotiated and set, so you know what you are earning every hour on the job.

From the first hour you work you’ll be employed by a contractor who has agreed to a negotiatied contract that establishes the wages, benefits and working conditions. This ensures that you are paid a fair wage for the work you do.

You also get regular raises, usually every six months if you apply yourself, until you reach the full journeyman scale at the end of the apprenticeship program. And, there’s a lot of room for advancement in this trade.

Millwrights can work anywhere from 8-hours a day/5 days a week, up to 12-hours a day/7 days a week depending on our customers’ needs.
