Meat Cutter Apprenticeship

UFCW Meat Cutters and Butchers Union

Our Meat Apprenticeship Program, a state-sponsored joint initiative between UFCW367 and employers, offers a comprehensive training experience. Participants engage in 288 hours of Related Supplemental Instruction (RSI) and 4000 hours of on-the-job training, spanning

approximately two years in 10-week sessions.

As a registered apprenticeship program in partnership with Bates Technical College, participants have the opportunity to earn a Journey-person meat cutter's card and may also apply credits toward further educational pursuits.

If you're interested in joining our program and pursuing a career in our trade, reach out to us and discuss potential job opportunities with your supervisor. Our program is designed to equip you with the skills necessary to excel as a meat cutter, as well as to prepare you for future leadership roles. We delve into the intricacies of the industry and its historical significance, tracing its evolution from the 1800s to the present day. Our goal is to provide you with the knowledge and expertise needed to become a valued professional in our community.
