FROM THE BMST
Below is a statement from General President Rigmaiden:
The Department of Labor has proposed excluding the construction industry and military from its Industry-Recognized Apprenticeship Programs (IRAPs), at least for the time being. After a 60-day public comment period, a final rule will be announced that could reverse the initial decision to exclude the construction industry.
It’s time to gear up for the fight ahead. We need as many members as possible to add their voices now that the final proposed rule is open for public comment in the Federal Register.
We need all our members to stand against this attack on our union and our apprenticeships.
Go to the following link to send an email right now to the Department of Labor. Tell them to protect IUPAT apprenticeships!
Dan Poling, BMST
