If you work as a Sheet Metal Worker, your paycheck, benefits and working conditions are in jeopardy because of IRAPs (Industry Recognized Apprenticeship Programs)!!! IRAPs will dilute apprenticeship standards already in place and give non-union contractors the ability to self certify their own apprenticeship training programs.
Visit www.SaveSMARTapprenticeships.org or text the word APPRENTICE to 21333 to fill out a form commenting on a new proposed rule from the Dept. of Labor to Urge the DOL to keep IRAPs out of the construction industry. Friends and family members can text the words HEAR ME to 21333. (Message and data rates may apply).
Time is running out. The final deadline for comments is August 26, 2019.
