North America’s Building Trades Unions’ (NABTU) world-class registered apprenticeship programs train U.S. workers to become highly-skilled, six-figure earning construction workers through a debt-free, technologically-advanced education. These earn-as-you-learn programs pay family-sustaining wages and provide health care coverage and retirement benefits. These programs also ensure the workers rebuilding our infrastructure have the highest level of training, keeping our communities and families safe. However, these programs and our future is at risk. A new proposal by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) could drive down training and labor standards in construction registered apprenticeship programs and set off a race to the bottom throughout our industry. And we have a month to stop it.
