Tell the Department of Labor you support the construction industry’s exclusion from IRAPs

Posted by on Thu, Jul 25, 2019 @ 15:07 PM

The Department of Labor has introduced draft language for regulations on expanding apprenticeships, including expanding Industry Recognized Apprenticeship Programs (IRAPs).

IRAPs are a direct threat to our Registered Insulators Union Apprenticeship program and to the entire construction industry.

Currently, the regulation has an exclusion for the construction industry, but during a 60-day comment period, we must tell the Department of Labor construction apprenticeships needs to remain excluded.

There is a building trades-wide campaign to tell the DOL construction industry apprenticeship programs need to continue to have oversight in order to maintain our excellent wages and benefits, dedication to safety and industry-leading training.

We need you, your family and friends to tell the DOL that government oversight is important to the registered construction industry apprenticeship programs and this oversight must remain.
