Our union apprenticeships are in danger, and we need all hands on deck to fight against anti-union operatives in Washington. As you know, the Department of Labor has proposed the creation of Industry-Recognized Apprenticeship Programs (IRAPs), a misguided proposal designed to cut corners, weaken standards, lower quality and reduce wages. IRAPs directly threaten the credibility of our union apprentices, all of our union members, and all Americans who rely on safe, high-quality infrastructure.
Can you take 5 minutes to quickly submit comments against the IRAPs proposal,
and help us save our credentials? The process is simple and requires just a few
minutes of your time.
We have already had thousands of your union brothers and sisters send comments but
we are short of our goal. Together, we can save union apprenticeships! Click on the
