Take ACTION- U.S. Department of Labor Attacks IBEW Members
07/19/19 - International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local Union 21
Brothers & Sisters, IBEW International President Lonnie Stephenson is asking that all IBEW members take action to fight a proposal under consideration in the U.S Department of Labor (DOL). The proposal would establish a system in which a non-union contractor could recognize its own “apprenticeship program” that would not be subject to many of the same requirements that IBEW DOL recognized apprenticeships are. Currently the construction industry is temporarily exempted from the proposal. There is great concern that this exemption will not be part of the final regulation. Nonunion builders are eager to eliminate it, opening up the industry to apprenticeships with lower standards and greater risks. All IBEW members are being asked to submit comments to the DOL in support of the construction industry exemption.
