"We have improved our profitability and customer satisfaction since we started with the union. Our projects get completed on schedule, and the end product is top quality. We could not have accomplished as much as we have, in as short of a time, without being an affiliated Sheet Metal Contractor.”

Patrick Duane, Superior Sheet Metal Inc

    Dear Member, 

    We have until August 26 to submit public comments.   Non-union groups are already in the process of swamping the Department of Labor with comments opposed to the exclusion of construction from IRAPs. They look to flood future job sites with low-wage, low-skilled labor classified as “apprentices.”

    Our new website — SaveSMARTapprenticeships.org — allows you to quickly and easily send a comment to the DOL in support of maintaining exclusion of the construction industry from IRAPs. Please take a few minutes now to send your message.

    Lets keep IRAP (Industry Recognized Apprenticeships) out of the Building trades!  You can go directly to the website by  clicking on the following link or click "Take action" below to sign the petition.

    Join us in calling on the DOL to maintain the construction industry exclusion from IRAPs and protect the value of our training.

    As SMART members, we get state-of-the-art construction industry training, both in the classroom and on the job. We also know first-hand the connections between high-quality training, worksite safety, good wages, and projects getting done on-time.

    The foundation of our training programs, our SMART sheet metal apprenticeship, is now in jeopardy.  

    Take action NOW.
