Proud ICI Union Electrician Anthony Amor here, aka Mr. Electrician by other union trades on jobs I have had the pleasure
of working on, and by my friends and family, hence the very very cool web name! This is my second attempt at building
my personal webpages for fun. I really had fun building my first webpages and learnt alot. They looked really good, (probably
too good) but way too like a real business one, which it wasn't, and never was, and never will be, and apparently
has confused somone. I have never done or will do any electrical contracting or service work for myself or others, to
do so would be unfairly competing against my local union and my union brothers and sisters. I only strictly work for unionized
contractors and not non-unionized scab outfits. So now I have finally started my new webpages, which is obviously
Pro Union, and I think everyone will all find it alot cooler, more laid back, and definetely more fun to check
out than the last one. So now about me! As most of you know I live in beautiful Burlington, and that I am a licensed
Journeyman Electrician (ICI construction & maintenance 309A). I have been involved in many different areas of the construction
industry for the last 15 years. I started my learning in the beginning with roofing, rough carpentry, drywalling, painting,
landscaping, and then finally electrical.
I discovered that I enjoyed electrical work the most, and began my formal apprenticeship in the residential sector. After
about a year and a half of residential electrical construction, I found that it failed to continue to challenge me, and I
decided to shift over to the ICI (industrial commercial institutional) electrical sector. I found the ICI sector to be more
of continual challenge and learning experience, and have really enjoyed it thus far.
When I switched over to the ICI sector I decided to join the union and continue my apprenticeship with them since I would
receive better training, benefits, and documentation of my apprenticeship. I am still currently a very proud member of
the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 353 Toronto. I have had the extreme pleasure of working with such great union contractors such as Guild Electric, Dow Electric, and Black
and MacDonald, and would never consider doing non union scab work ever.
I have recently decided to study home inspection because I feel I have solid background within the construction industry,
especially electrical, and feel that this would compliment my personal interest to achieve the RHI designation (registered
home inspector) offered through the Ontario Association of Home Inspectors, and who knows, maybe eventually begin my
own home inspection business one day and I can finally get off the tools! I also believe it is never too late to continue
your education and better yourself. Good luck everyone with your own personal development.
