SAVE UA APPRENTICESHIPS

Brothers and Sisters,

The apprenticeship programs of the United Association and all Building Trades Unions are under attack and your help is urgently needed.

The Department of Labor needs to hear from our membership as well as from our family and friends. Participating is easy to do and only takes a few minutes.

Please take the time to read the message below from UA General President Mark McManus that explains the issue in greater detail.

The links that follow this message will take you to the web-based tool the UA has created to expedite the submission of letters. The DOL will not accept form letters, so this tool will allow for the creation of multiple versions of letters based on drop-down menus and the selection of various topics of importance, as well as identifying whether the user is an apprentice, journey worker, retiree, or family member.

After clicking on the link, the process of generating a letter will take less than two minutes.

I urge every member to submit your letter to the DOL by the deadline of August 26. By doing so, you can do your part to help protect your future and the United Association.

Individual attention and guidance are given high priority.  Strict codes of performance are learned from the start of training and are monitored in the field by journeymen during each apprentice's on-the-job training experiences.  Check out our Apprenticeship page for details.
