Save Our Apprenticeships
Updated On: Aug 01, 2019

Bureaucrats in Washington are trying to destroy the IBEW/NECA electrical training ALLIANCE apprenticeship programs. We cannot let them!

 

 

Brothers and Sisters,

The Department of Labor (DOL) has proposed a regulation that would allow contractors to register their own apprenticeship programs. The new programs would be called Industry Registered Apprenticeship Programs and would not be subject to the same quality, safety, EEOC, and Davis Bacon standards that our training programs fully comply with.

Presently, the construction industry is temporarily exempted from the proposal but there is great concern that the exemption will be removed before the regulation becomes final.

Please visit saveIBEWapprenticeships.org to tell the DOL the exemption should not only remain, but it should be permanent. In addition, a page for IBEW members outside of the construction industry, family members, and friends, has been set up and is available at the link too. I encourage you to share this information and link with your family and friends as it is something that will impact everyone.

 

Sincerely,

George Bland

Business Manager
