Help LiUNA Defend Construction Registered Apprenticeships

Keep IRAPs Out of Construction

We need to help our LIUNA brothers and sisters make sure the Administration does not allow low quality industry apprenticeship programs, called IRAPs, in the construction industry. IRAPs would open the door to unskilled workers—not only lowering apprenticeship pay but your wages and benefits as well.

All LIUNA leaders, reps, contractors, apprentices and every card-carrying LIUNA member should send a comment to the U.S. Department of Labor with the message that construction should not be part of the IRAPs - ever.

Fight back! Send a message to stop the anti-union contractors who want to destroy our apprenticeship programs.

Form letters will not be accepted. LIUNA has set up a platform for you to easily create unique comments based on a few personal details.
