IRAP Comment Collection

Monday, July 01, 2019

The Department of Labor is developing a policy change to include Industry Related Apprenticeship Programs (IRAPs) for industries that do not have recognized apprenticeship programs like the construction trades. Unregulated IRAPs with low quality training standards could seriously undermine our apprenticeship system as we know it. The construction industry needs to remain exempt from IRAPs. Ironworkers Local 8 will collect comments from our Ironworkers, friends and family on Tuesday, July 2nd and Wednesday, July 3rd from 8am to 5pm. Please stop by Ironworkers Local 8 to submit your comment, staff will be on hand to assist you.
