*Action Alert* NABTU and State Councils across the country are saying “NO” to a proposed U.S. Labor Dept. rule on Industry Recognized Apprenticeship Programs (IRAPS)
Please share your opposition with a formal comment at the link below!
Some main points on the rule: this rule would flood the construction industry with unskilled, low-wage workers that would be classified as registered apprentices under this program. These workers/apprentices would not have to adhere to any of the federal registered apprenticeship codes, such as EEO, wages, quality control, and reporting. The purpose of this proposal is to obliterate our apprenticeship programs.
