What Does the Biden DOL’s Controversial Apprenticeship Proposed Rule Mean for ABC Members and Chapters?

January 30 @ 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm

On Dec. 14, 2023, the Biden administration announced a 779-page U.S. Department of Labor proposed rule that would make significant and controversial revisions to the National Apprenticeship System. The proposal was widely criticized by ABC and other stakeholders for its additional red tape, costs and pro-union and controversial provisions that are expected to discourage new and existing participants in the government-registered apprenticeship system. The proposed rule will ultimately undermine investments in America’s infrastructure, clean energy and manufacturing construction projects.

Maury Baskin and Ben Brubeck will provide an overview of the proposal and will explain how it will affect ABC members, ABC chapters, apprentices and other industry stakeholders participating in government-registered apprenticeship programs. Participants will learn about the many problematic and limited beneficial provisions of the proposal and receive instructions about how to participate in regulatory and advocacy efforts to help improve this extensive regulation.

Encourage ABC member and chapter education professionals, human resources, management professionals and other stakeholders to register to attend the webinar.
