Save Union Apprenticeships | Submit Your Comments

Date Posted: Friday, July 26, 2019


The Department of Labor has proposed a new regulation that could open the construction industry to Industry Recognized Apprenticeship Programs (IRAPs). These lower-quality training programs would undercut our registered apprenticeship programs and help nonunion contractors take our jobs.
This is an attack on our apprenticeships and our union. 
The Department of Labor lets people comment on regulations before they go into effect. This is our chance to be heard! If thousands of union ironworkers submit comments, we will show that we are a force to be reckoned with.
