Apprentice Ratio Rules Change
Updated On: Sep 22, 2021

Sisters and Brothers

Montana's apprentices and journey workers need your help to protect their wages, the quality of their training and the safety of the public. Changes are being proposed by Governor Gianforte’s Department of Labor that will impact the working conditions and development of apprentices in Montana.

The proposed changes would decrease the apprentice to journey worker ratio to one-to-one with the addition of pre-apprentices that will add even more untrained workers. These changes will only lead to more workplace hazards, depressed wages throughout the trades and a lower standard of training and development for new workers.

A public hearing is scheduled for October 12 and we need your voice today to protect our workforce.

Let Governor Gianforte and the Montana Department of Labor know that you oppose these changes and support the attached amendment.

Protect Montana’s apprentices, protect Montana’s workers.
